I missed the memo but apparently “nonfiction November” is a thing. Perhaps subconsciously, I followed along because I read more nonfiction in November than I read the entire rest of the year. I also only listened to one audiobook which is strange for me.
Six of the ten books I finished were nonfiction:
- Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott
- Hope and Other Superpowers by John Pavlovitz
- Meaty by Samantha Irby
- Stitches: A Handbook on Meaning, Hope, and Repair by Anne Lamott
- Dress your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris (audiobook)
- Shrill by Lindy West
The other four fiction books:
- The Farm by Joanne Ramos (ARC)
- Bitter Orange by Claire Fuller – Our Book Club for Introverts November pick
- Little Darlings by Melanie Golding (ARC) – look for this one stopping by on its blog tour in April!
- Running from Scissors by T.C. Westcott
My favorite nonfiction book was Shrill. The message is so important. Bird by Bird was a close second.
My favorite fiction book was Bitter Orange with Little Darlings coming in second. Both books had dark twists and turns and were enjoyable reads.
I have four books left to hit my 2018 reading goal of 75. I should meet that goal that goal this coming week so then my December plans are to dig into some tougher books and enjoy my book club book, Nine Perfect Strangers. And BTW, it’s not too late to join Book Club For Introverts for December. Anyone is welcome!
Wow! You are a reading machine. I predominately let pepole read to me (audio books) and I can’t keep up with you. I’ll be watching for you when reading becomes an Olympic sport.
