I’m not a huge reader of non-fiction but my book shelves reveal my weaknesses – books about genetics, pop-science, the Art Deco era, and memoirs (am I allowed to count them as non-fiction?) make up the bulk of my non-fiction reading.
On the strength of that (and a little belatedly), I have decided to take part in
Nonfiction November (spotted at JulzReads and Sarah’s Book Shelves).
This week’s non-fiction topic is
‘book pairings’ – pair a non-fiction title with a fiction title.

Genetics, what we ‘feel’ at a cellular level and relationships – by Matt Ridley and The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature by James Meek The Heart Broke In
The 80s and what we learnt – by Hadley Freeman and Life Moves Pretty Fast by Bret Easton Ellis The Rules of Attraction
The perils of social media –
by Jon Ronson and So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Louise O’Neill Asking For It
Food and relationships –
