Hi friends, happy Friday! November is Nonfiction November, hosted by Olive at A Book Olive on YouTube, and I was thinking of kind of half participating. I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump the past few months, but I’ve also been on the up. And I think having a loose plan of books I want to read could help.
So I thought Nonfiction November would be a good way to do that, and also read some books that have been on my shelf! So, here are some nonfiction books I want to read soon.
Run Towards the Danger by Sarah Polley: my dad got me this essay collection/memoir for my birthday, and I’ve heard nothing but good things about it! I sometimes struggle with essay collections, so I’m thinking of maybe doing one per day, or every couple of days, until I finish it.
I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy: I have this book on hold from the library, and it actually got released way sooner than I was expecting (I was 900th in line at one point), but I pushed my release date back a week, so I’m hoping it will be available closer to November. But I’m really, really excited to read this memoir. Another one I’ve heard nothing but good things about.
You Are Your Best Thing by Tarana Burke and Brené Brown: another one my dad got me for my birthday — he knows me so well. Brené Brown is one of my favourites, and I think Tarana Burke is amazing, so I’m very excited to read this.
Disability Visibility edited by Alice Wong: this is an essay collection about being disabled by disabled authors, and I’m super excited to read it! My friend Shadi bought me a copy a couple of years ago (thanks Shadi!!!), so this would be another physical book I could read and count towards my goal this year.
And those are some nonfiction books I want to read soon! There are obviously many more that I want to read in general, but these are the ones I want to hopefully prioritize next month.
What nonfiction books do you want to read soon? Are you doing Nonfiction November? Have you read any of these? Let me know!
