Nonfiction November (Week 4): New to my TBR

I can’t believe that Nonfiction November is over again! I’ve had such a great time connecting to other nonfiction readers! Thank you to our incredible hosts Leanne @ Shelf Aware, Julie @ Julz Reads, Rennie @ What’s Nonfiction and Katie @ Doing Dewey for taking this on this year and giving us all a chance to discuss some amazing nonfiction!

It was a decent month of nonfiction reading for me. I’m working my way through Barack Obama’s memoir to close out the month and if I manage it, I will have finished 10 books this month. My nonfiction reading percentage is up to 34% from 29%. The best books I read this month were Motherhood So White by Nefertiti Austin, The Meaning of Mariah Carey by Mariah Carey and Michaela Angela Davis (yes really) and Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward.

For this last week, Katie @ Doing Dewey is leading us through what’s new on our TBR?

It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book!

So. I do not have a good track record of actually reading the books that jump out at me over the course of this event. Like at all. Out of the books I posted in 2018 and 2019 combined, I have now read TWO. So I’ve tried to be super mindful about what I’m including on my list. Not to say that I haven’t learned about so much wonderful sounding nonfiction. Just that when the time comes to actually select books to read, these don’t seem to be the ones that come to mind.

I’m pretty sure I said the exact same thing last year and again, my track record speaks for itself.

Here are the books I made a point of writing down to try and remember to read at some point in my lifetime:

  1. I added The Body Keeps Score to my TBR list too. The body’s reaction to trauma is a really fascinating subject, and I’ve always been interested in brain research. I hope you enjoy the other reads on this list!

  2. Ha! Yeah, I honestly don’t even know why I keep a to-read list, because I rarely read what’s on it and even more rarely read books on it because they were on it. I’m really prioritizing reading books I own right now though and I dream of a day when I get through enough of them that I start visiting my to-read list for ideas 🙂 Thanks for joining us this month!
