Nonfiction November: Week 1

Nonfiction November is here and is hosted by Katie of Doing Dewey, Julz of Julz Reads, Rennie of What’s Nonfiction, and Leann of Shelf Aware

Week 1: (Nov. 2 to Nov. 6) – Your Year in Nonfiction (Leann of Shelf Aware): Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions.

What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? I always have a difficult time picking a favorite of anything, but here are the nonfiction books that I gave a 5 out of 5 rating so far this year:

Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year? This year (and the second half of last year) seems to have been dedicated to my self-work on antiracism. I've been doing a lot of reading of articles, blogs, books, and listening to podcasts on this theme.

What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? The nonfiction book I've recommended the most this year is probably Stamped or How to Be an Antiracist. Both are really powerful books that got me thinking.

What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November? I hope to get nonfiction reading ideas from the other bloggers participating in Nonfiction November. But, to be honest, I like how this process gets me thinking about nonfiction books in general, especially this year since I haven't read as much nonfiction as I'd like. Maybe that's because of the current pandemic and political situation. I've wanted to escape more into fiction this year.
