New to My TBR

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

I didn't post for Week 4: (November 22-26) – Stranger Than Fiction with Christopher at Plucked from the Stacks which focused on all the great nonfiction books that *almost* don’t seem real. I couldn't think of any non-fiction that felt stranger than fiction to me. Maybe I'm just too cynical and prepared to believe outrageous things. 

Anyway, moving on to the 20 books I have added to my TBR during #nonficnov:

  • The Art of the English Murder: From Jack the Ripper and Sherlock Holmes to Agatha Christie and Alfred Hitchcock by Lucy Worsley (from Joy's Book Blog)
  • Fridge Love: Organize Your Refrigerator for a Healthier, Happier Life by Kristen Hong (from Based on a True Story)
  • The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman (this has been on my list, as I mentioned in week 3, but I was reminded about it by Deb At Readerbuzz)
  • The Power of Ritual by Casper Ter Kuile (from Silver Button Books)
  • Index, a History of the by Dennis Duncan (from Books Please)
  • Vote First or Die by Scott Conroy (from Plucked from the Stacks)
  • The Adventures of Miss Barbara Pym by Paula Byrne (from Entering the Enchanted Castle
  • The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson (from Gulfside Musing
  • Enid by Robert Wainwright (from book'd out -- though it was on their TBR as well rather than a recommendation)
  • Writing at the Kitchen Table: Elizabeth David, the Authorized Biography by Artemis Cooper (from Scones and Chaise Longues) -- I have already gotten this from the library and began reading it.
  • The Brontes: Wild Genius on the Moors: The Story of Three Sisters by Juliet Barker (from Doing Dewey)
  • The Barbizon by Paulina Bren and The Girl in White Gloves by Kerri Maher (a pairing from The Paperback Princess)
  • The Rose Code by Kate Quinn (from Reading, Writing, Working, Playing) -- this work of fiction was paired with The Code Girls which I already read.
  • Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (from The Thousand Book Project)
  • Murder Your Darlings by Roy Peter Clark (from LisaNotes)
  • The Moralist: Woodrow Wilson and the World He Made by Patricia O'Toole (recommended in a comment from Lory at Entering the Enchanted Castle)
  • Off the Clock by Laura Vanderkam (from The Book Stop)
  • Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant (from What's Nonfiction) -- essays from various people about eating/cooking for one
  • A Libertarian Walks into a Bear by by Matthew Hongoltz-Hetling (from What's Nonfiction and Plucked from the Stacks) -- both blogs featured it as stranger than fiction, but I've lived in NH long enough that I doubt I will find it that unlikely; I am interested in reading it. 


  1. Great harvest. I added 17 myself:

  2. Flow is the book in which I discovered one of the key components to happiness, so I second that recommendation. Fridge Love is a book I somehow missed first time around, but I think I'll add it to my list now.

  3. My TBR list exploded this month, too. Hope you love The Splendid and the Vile as much as I did.

  4. I added the Index book to my wish list after I first read Margaret's review too.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
