Happy Wednesday, pals and gals! I hope your week has been going great.
It’s currently Non-Fiction November, and though I’m not participating, I did still want to talk about and highlight some non-fiction books. A couple weeks ago I did some recommendations, so today I thought I’d talk about some non-fiction books on my TBR! This ended up being fairly long, so I apologize for the text-heavy post.
Night by Elie Wiesel: I have a copy of this book, and really need to read it soon. I’m generally not a fan of WWII, but I don’t think I’ve actually read any WWII non-fiction, so that needs to be rectified soon.
If Women Counted by Marilyn Waring: I’m an economics nerd, and this is all about unpaid labour by women (
I’m pretty sure). I think by now, it’s fairly dated, but I still want to read it.
Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit: I honestly mainly just like this title. But I’ve also heard great things about this and want to read it soon.
Little Weirds by Jenny Slate: this is a recent addition, but I’ve heard really good things about this memoir. And I love Jenny Slate soooo
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot: even though I’m in law school, I am still at heart a STEM gal. So I definitely want to read this.
Rough Magic by Lara Prior-Palmer: I am also a Horse Girl through and through. So I definitely want to read this soon.
Queer, There and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed the World by Sarah Prager: I am always here to support the queers and queer history. Also, that pun as the title? Amazing.
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah: we also own a copy of this, though I’ve heard really good things about the audiobook, so I might try to get that from somewhere too. But I love Trevor Noah, and heard him talk about this book a while ago.
The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America by Erik Larson: my friend Noah recommended this book to me a while ago, and it sounds really interesting. I love a good fire (is that bad?).
The Only Girl in the World: A Memoir by Maude Julien: this sounds harrowing but amazing, which is my kind of book tbh. A bunch of my friends have read it and loved it, so I really need to read it soon.
Hunger by Roxanne Gay: I mentioned recently that I haven’t read anything by Roxanne Gay yet but didn’t know where to start, but I think I want to start with this one. It sounds super interesting.
So those are some non-fiction books I want to read soon! Have you read any of these? Which do you recommend? What non-fiction books do you want to read? Let me know!
