Nonfiction November: New to My TBR

Hooray, Nonfiction November is here! Nonfiction November is a month-long celebration of everything nonfiction. Each week, we’ll have a different prompt and a different host looking at different ideas about reading and loving nonfiction.

Week 5 (Nov. 26 to Nov. 30)
New to my TBR (Hosted by Katie at Doing Dewey)

It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books!

How about you? What nonfiction books have you added to your TBR?


  1. You have been a reading champion this month. Awesome, I am glad you are enjoying it. I have to check out The Newcomers. I do like that it's based on a true story. Have a wonderful week!


    1. I should clarify: These aren’t books I read this month. These are books I now want to read.

  2. Nonfiction November sounds like fun. Enjoy it! I haven't read non-fiction in some time, I need to get back to reading some.

  3. Ahhhh so many good books and no time to read them, especially since I spend so much time reading book blogs and Litsy instead of actually reading. But thanks for adding another handful of books to my Mt. TBR!

  4. Wow, you have an impressive month! I got Becoming, by Michelle Obama. I have seen others I will enjoy, but I'm not participating in the challenge, so I'll take my time.

    Enjoy yours!

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. What a great list of books! I found lots of new to me titles and I'm so excited to check some of these out

    Here's my Sunday post

  6. Nice list, I'm glad I contributed 1 title. And there was one book of interest here that I had not seen before (The Joy of Forest Bathing), so thanks! My post will be up on Wed

  7. You need to read Born a Crime and The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating for sure. I hope to get to Forty Autumns soon.

    1. These are the two from this list that I've read also, and I add my recommendation of both too!

  8. Wow! That's a lot of awesome nonfiction books! I need to add some nonfiction books to my TBR!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  10. I'm glad I was able to add Bookworm to your TBR! :) I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. You've certainly found lots of other books to add too. Happy reading.

  11. JoAnn (Lakeside Musing) can be very dangerous to your book budget!

  12. These all sound good, but I just don't read nonfiction. I hope you enjoy your new additions. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  13. What a really nice thought if giving the links to the blogs as well. Thanks.

  14. Right now I'm in the middle of middle grade fiction. My weekly update

  15. Wow that is a ton of new books to add to a TBR list! It ought to keep you going for quite some time.
