Nonfiction November – Week 4 – Stranger Than Fiction #nonficnov #NonfictionNovember

Here we are, the penultimate week of #NonfictionNovember and week 4’s prompt is Stranger Than Fiction.

Week 4: (November 22-26) – Stranger Than Fiction with Christopher at Plucked from the Stacks: This week we’re focusing on all the great nonfiction books that *almost* don’t seem real. A sports biography involving overcoming massive obstacles, a profile on a bizarre scam, a look into the natural wonders in our world—basically, if it makes your jaw drop, you can highlight it for this week’s topic.

These prompts are really making me think about the nonfiction I read! I suppose there are two nonfiction books that fall into the Stranger Than Fiction category.

Secrets of the Mummy Concierge by Tiffany Norris

When I read Secrets of The Mummy Concierge, I didn’t know such a vocation existed. The demands Norris is expected to fulfil are bonkers!

My Mother, Munchausen’s and Me : A true story of betrayal and a shocking family secret by Helen Naylor

My Mother, Munchausen’s and Me is one disturbing read about the extent one person can go to for attention, the lies that can be told and how manipulative an individual can be. I always knew people can be selfish and twisted but Naylor shows just how warped a loved one can be.
