Nonfiction November 2023 – Book Pairings

It’s Week 3 of Nonfiction November, this week hosted by Adventures in Reading, Running and Working From Home. The task? Pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. This is my absolute favourite #NFN exercise.

  1. Your beauty industry pairing caught my attention because I’ve just read a feature article about one of these ‘influencers”. She has earned enough money to buy a £2million house, complete with a dedicated room just for all the stuff she gets sent and various stage settings for videos. Her husband has given up his job to be her manager …eye opening just how much money companies are willing to send her way….

  2. Some excellent pairings there, well done! I love the variety within your post as well as the range I’m seeing in general – and I’m thrilled people are engaging with “my” week as there’s always that worry!
