I absolutely love reading non-fiction but I definitely don’t do enough of it! That’s why in the month of November I wanted to participate in Nonfiction November! If you’re not sure what it’s all about, read this post by What’s Nonfiction to get a better idea!
Now I’m self-aware enough to know I won’t get much read in November considering I’ve only managed to read 3 books for the last 2 months. However, I still want to set myself a little TBR for the Nonfiction November challenge! These are the nonfiction books that have made the shortlist.
Columbine by Dave Cullen
I bought this book in a charity shop back when I was around 14 or 15. I had a massive fascination with the tragedy at Columbine at the time, and while I still do and I love all things true crime, the continued gun violence in America is so prominent that it constantly gets me down and so I avoided reading this one. I’ve now decided it’s time to bite the bullet and read this one. I’ve heard it’s absolutely amazing and I know it will be a really fascinating and eye-opening read.
The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson
Now I have actually already read a portion of this book. Back in 2014, when I went to Greece, this was one of the books I took with me, on mum’s recommendation. I began reading it on the plane back and then when we landed home I just completely forgot to pick it up again. I already know that I like it from the bit I already read, so I’m excited to actually finish it! (I will be starting it from the beginning again)
This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay
I’ve seen this book everywhere, and when I spotted it for £3 on Amazon, I just had to get it! I like the fact it’s set out as a diary, it makes the book feel like a quicker read which is definitely something I’m after at the moment, coming out the backend of a reading slump.
So there we have, those are the nonfiction novels I’m focusing on in November. If I happen to get my reading speed back I might even be able to read another, which would be exciting!
