Nonfiction November TBR

November is here which means Nonfiction November has officially started! Nonfiction November started as a reading challenge on Youtube to get readers to read more nonfiction. This year they have four categories: home, substance, love and scholarship. This will be the first year I’ll be participating in NN but I’m excited because I have so many nonfiction books I want to read but haven’t yet. Below are what I’m planning on reading (maybe not all this month). Enjoy and let me know if you’re participating in Nonfiction November!



The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone by Olivia Laing 

I have wanted to read this book for so long. So long. And this being the month I transition into living along, I think it’s the perfect time to read it.





The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee

What fits the category more for substance than the very thing that makes up who we are? I’ve started this and it is definitely a slow read but I want to dive into it more during November.





Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay

I’m really interested in the relationship between food and body and body and self. I’m really looking forward to Roxane Gay’s (very honest) memoir of the relationship she’s had with her body.






Spinster by Kate Bolick

Do we need romantic love to be successful? Probably not. What about self-love? What about the love between your body and soul? I’m really interested to see how Kate Bolick covers the idea and makes a case for being a “spinster”.





Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t StopTalking by Susan Cain

This has been on my TBR and my bookshelf for so long and it’s about time I got to it. As a self-proclaimed introvert, I really need to start seeing it as a strength and not a weakness.





Scratch: Writers, Money, and the Art of Making a Living edited by ManjulaMartin

There are so many writers featured in this that I admire! I want to read this so badly.





Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman by Robert K. Massie

Just to add an extravagant book that will probably take me a hundred years to read, we have Catherine the Great by Robert K. Massie. I can’t really explain this one except for the fact that I want to read more history books and Massie seems to be the person to go to!
