I'm rather excited to be joining in with Nonfiction November for the first time. Nonfiction November is all over at the moment. Bookbloggers and booktubers are both joining in with great enthusiasm it's wonderful to see. I do read nonfiction from time to time, but am looking forward to focusing on it this month, I'm not sure how much I'll get read, but will plunge in anyway.
The questions this week are from JulzReads.
What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year?
Hands down my favourite nonfiction of this year so far is The Hidden Life of Trees (see my review). I listened to the audiobook and was in thrall of it from the very start.
What nonfiction book have you recommended the most?
Magda Szubanski's Reckoning is astonishing (see my review). This was another audiobook "read" for me. Magda reads the audiobook and she puts her full vocal talents to use.
I love nonfiction (and fiction too, let it be said) about Paris and Joan of Arc. I've read lots.
What is one topic or type of nonfiction you haven’t read enough of yet?
Most of the nonfiction that I've read (especially recently) has been memoir. There's been amazing memoirs in the past few years, lots of them Australian. I have a whole self of bird nonfiction that I need to read sometime- and yet I still keep buying more. I don't read much (any) history, although I do buy it.
What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
I'm looking to broaden my reading. I have a few stalled nonfiction books on my Current Reads on goodreads, and I'd like to get them finished. I'd also like to put AusReading Month (over at Brona's Books) to good use and get some Aussie Nonfiction done.
I'm really looking forward to discovering lots of new books, new blogs and new booktubers.
I've already done a Nonfiction November TBR (of sorts). I'm not good at sticking to TBRs, and indeed the first book that I'll finish this month is not on that TBR, it wasn't actually in the house when I made that TBR...
