Nonfiction November – Week 5 — New to My TBR

So we’ve reached the finale of #NonfictionNovember with week 5’s prompt being New to My TBR.

Week 5: (November 29-December 3) — New to My TBR with Jaymi at The OC Bookgirl: 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!

Like I need more books on #MountTBR but I’m a book addict, I accept I’ll buy more books than I’ll ever read! But these are the books I’ve added to my intended purchase pile over the course of November.

My #NonfictionNovember 2021

I’ve really enjoyed taking part in my first #NonfictionNovember. It’s made me think about the books I have read and want to read. I’ve found some new blogs to follow and I’ve yet again increased #MountTBR (doesn’t take much though).

This month I’ve posted my reviews for:

Wham! George and Me by Andrew Ridgeley

Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

My Mother, Munchausen’s And Me by Helen Naylor

I also read Above and Beyond: Secrets of a Private Flight Attendant by Saskia Swann and Nicola Stow (review to come).

Many thanks to Rennie (What’s Nonfiction), Katie (Doing Dewey), Veronica (The Thousand Book Project) Christopher (Plucked from the Stacks), and Jaymi at (The OC Bookgirl) for an enjoyable month and to Nicki (The Secret Library Book Blog) for inspiring me to take part even if the decision was extremely impulsive and last minute by me.

Next year I’m determined to be more organised and have more nonfiction reviews prepared for November. By until then, I’m going to continue with my self-made promise to read more nonfiction.
