Nonfiction November – New to My TBR

It’s the final week of Nonfiction November, hosted by What’s Nonfiction?

So what’s the damage? I’ve added a few books to the TBR stack –

Forty Autumns: A Family’s Story of Courage and Survival on Both Sides of the Berlin Wall by Nina Willner – Julz Reads

Stacie left me a bunch of memoir suggestions after noting that I was enjoying The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs. I’ll work through the list but first cabs off the rank will be: A Mother’s Reckoning: Life in the Aftermath of the Columbine Tragedy by Sue Klebold; Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I’ve Loved by Kate Bowler; and Grief Works: Stories of Life, Death, and Surviving by Julia Samuel.

Hearing Maud by Jessica White look fascinating – ANZ LitLLovers

Split Tooth by Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq because Lovely Bookshelf describes it as ‘an experience’.

The Plaza by Julie Satow was on Musings of a Literary Wanderer’s NFN reading list.

A bunch from Mind Joggle‘s list – My Glory Was That I Had Such Friends by Amy Silverstein; Where the Angels Lived by Margaret McMullan; I Miss You When I Blink by Mary Laura Philpott.

I’m tempted by The Riviera Set: 1920 – 1960: The Golden Years of Glamour and Excess by Mary S Lovell on the strength of the cover alone – Books Please

Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe – Howling Frog Books and also on Doing Dewey

Plagued by Fire by Paul Hendrickson (always interested in Frank Lloyd Wright) – Sarah’s Book Shelves

Lastly, thank you to all the Nonfiction November hosts – it’s been fun! And thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on posts.

  1. Good list Kate – and well done. I included a couple books from posts I’d read in my list, but the rest were books I’ve added from elsewhere (some a long time ago!) Not perhaps in the law of the meme, but in the spirit!
