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.
