Nonfiction November is hosted by Rennie @ What’s Nonfiction, Katie @ Doing Dewey, Veronica @ The Thousand Book Project, Christopher @ Plucked from the Stacks, and Jaymi @ The OC Bookgirl.



Nonfiction November is here again!
I participated for the first time last year and had a blast so of course I’m doing it again this year.


My Year in Nonfiction

Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions


What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year?  

Greek Mythology: The Gods, Goddesses, and Heroes Handbook by Liv Albert

Liv Albert is the host of my favorite podcast Let’s Talk About Myths, Baby so it hasn’t come as a surprise that her book ended up as my favorite nonfiction of the year. It was also my most anticipated book of the year and Liv absolutely smashed it, along with Sara Richard who made the beautiful illustrations.


Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year?

Yes! I’ve been reading more books that go into mindfulness and mental health this year, which are topics that are very important to me. I would highly recommend the three below.

Het No-Nonsense Meditatieboek by Steven Laureys
Mindscaping: A Practical Guide For How To Be Happier by Donovon Jenson
Chill Out and Cheer Up: A Ten-Step Guide by Grace Grossmann


What nonfiction book have you recommended the most?

I think the nonfiction book that I have recommended the most is Powerful Women of the Medieval World by Dorsey Armstrong. This is an Audible Original that’s part of their Great Courses books and it is excellent. I’ve read my fair share of the Greart Courses but this one is by far my favorite. It’s super fascinating and Dorsey Armstrong narrated it in a really great way.


What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November? 

My answer for this one is pretty simply. I hope to discover more bloggers that are into nonfiction like I am and of course to add more nonfiction books to my (never ending) TBR. 🥰

    I didn’t get much non-fiction reading done this year unfortunately. I do remember the Greek mythology book you’ve put in this post — the illustrations are gorgeous!

  2. I do like reading nonfiction, but I haven’t done much of it in awhile. I’m going to get one or two in this month! Thanks for the recommendations. I do love books about mental health, etc.


  3. Interesting choice of books. I read mostly history, but also decided to read some mindfulness books this year. They are already on my shelves. I am always a fan of the Greek myths, so interesting. Thank you for your recommendation on powerful women during the medieval ages. That goes directly on to my to read list. Sounds very interesting.
