Nonfiction November 2017 – New to My TBR

Nonfiction November 2017 Info

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.

alt text 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.

Post-WWII serial killer within a wider story of London. Sounds good to me! Recommended via a #FuturisticFriday post by Doing Dewey.

alt text 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.

Sports? Kick-ass ladies? Yes, please! Recommended by My Book Strings.

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…

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…


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.

  1. 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.
