Nonfiction November: Week 5

Week 5: (Nov. 26 to 30) – New to My TBR (Katie @ Doing Dewey): 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 many excellent nonfiction books are on my TBR now thanks to this great month of posts!

Here’s Ten 🔟 I have put at the top of my list:

A Mountain of Crumbs by Elena Gorokhova. This beautiful cover caught my eye in this post by What’s Nonfiction.

The Race to Save the Romanovs by Helen Rappaport. A subject I’ve always been curious about, and Julz Reads gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ in this post.

The Night of Broken Glass edited by Uta Gerhardt and Thomas Karlauf. The devastating events of November 1938 detailed by survivors. A powerful read recommended by JulzReads here.

The Stranger Beside Me by Ann Rule. I am fascinated by true crime and psychopaths such as Ted Bundy living amongst us… and so is The Paperback Princess. Check out her post here.

I am. I am. I am : Seventeen Brushes with Death by Maggie O’Farrell. Near death experiences? I’m intrigued! Thank you to Ayunda for this post.

Where the Water Goes: Life and Death Along The Colorado River by David Owen. A sobering look at water usage in the Southwest US. Literary Mixtape shares some favorite nonfiction reads relating to conservation and water rights. Here’s the original post.

The Year of Living Biblically: One Man’s Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible by A. J. Jacobs. Twice in one day this author showed up in my feed! Deb from Reader Buzz had this one on her list.

Word by Word: The Secret Life of Dictionaries by Kory Stamper Kazen – As a lover and collector of words this looks like an interesting read and Kazen from Always Doing agreed!

The Color of Pixar – Foreword by John Lassiter. This one was on Reading With Jade’s list of nonfiction reads she’s read in 2018. Who doesn’t love Pixar?

My Fundamentalist Education by Christine Rosen – Maphead likes this one about former fundamentalists who came of age in the late 70s and 80s.

And that’s a wrap on Nonfiction November!

Did you participate? Did you find any new reads to add to your TBR?

Thanks to Julie (JulzReads), Sarah (Sarah’s Book Shelves), Katie (Doing Dewey), Rennie (What’s Nonfiction) and Kim (Sophisticated Dorkiness) for a great event!


  1. Thank you for the shout out! I really enjoyed I Am I Am I Am, it’s so much more than near-death experiences. I’ve definitely increased my TBR as well thanks to all these posts! ❤
