Week 5: (Nov. 27 to Dec. 1) Host-: Lory @ Emerald City Book Review: New to My TBR: 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!
This year, I thought ahead bookmarked (via Evernote) when and where I heard about new titles. So, here we go: Nonfiction New to My TBR.
|Life Moves Pretty Fast: The Lessons We Learned From Eighties Movies (And Why We Don’t Learn Them From Movies Any More) by Hadley Freeman
In another life, I was a film major. I love movies and I’m a child of the 80s. Recommended by Books are My Favourite and Best along with The Rules of Attraction.
|Death in the Air: The True Story of a Serial Killer, the Great London Smog, and the Strangling of a City by Kate Winkler Dawson
Post-WWII serial killer within a wider story of London. Sounds good to me! Recommended via a #FuturisticFriday post by Doing Dewey.
|The Circus Fire: A True Story of an American Tragedy by Stewart O’Nan
There’s a bit of overlap between magic and circuses and this is a story I don’t know. Recommended by Always Doing.
|Dust Bowl Girls: The Inspiring Story of the Team That Barnstormed Its Way to Basketball Glory by Lydia Reeder
Sports? Kick-ass ladies? Yes, please! Recommended by My Book Strings.
|Winner of the “I didn’t know I wanted to know about” award: Wild Places for a Be the Expert post about Survival at Sea.
I had no idea there were so many books on this subject or that I wanted to read them all. I need to start reading faster…
|Bunk: The True Story of Hoaxes, Hucksters, Humbug, Plagiarists, Forgeries, and Phonies by Kevin Young
This is a honorable mention because, while nonfiction, it (whispers) wasn’t from a NonFicNov post. Instead, it was from Outlandish Lit’s 11 Books To Look For This November! This is a book right up my alley.
Okay, confession time. This is an abridged list of what’s new to my TBR. So… many… books…

I read Death in the Air this month and really enjoyed it – hope you love it!
I’m so happy that I could add to your TBR! Death in the Air is one of those books that I wasn’t initially interested in but seeing how many people love it has put it on my own list.
Thanks for the mention! Hope you enjoy Life Moves Pretty Fast.
Thanks for the link. I’m glad I could tempt you with Dust Bowl Girls. Coincidentally, I just started to listen to Endurance, and I’m really enjoying it so far.
Life Moves Pretty Fast sounds awesome. I’m nostalgic just thinking about it! Great list.
Bunk looks really good!
I opted for an abridged list, too…. SO MANY GOOD BOOKS!
