The week 2 topic is Your Year in Fiction / Nonfiction Book Pairing hosted at Sarah's Book Shelves.
This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.
The Extra Woman by Joanna Scutts pairs very nicely with the novel Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney. The first one is about a time and place in American history where women had options that closed to them later on. The second is the story of a woman (based on a real person mentioned in the first book) looking back on her life.
