I have been watching BookTube for a long time. I have never participated, but I am a long time watcher. Since I’m doing this blogging thing as a regular thing now, I thought it would be fun to participate in more events than I had before. I would do readathons and stuff with my best friend, but it’s been fun to be in the blogging world to have more friends and people to connect with. Anyway, this is going to be my first year doing nonfiction November. I read nonfiction not a lot, but I’ve enjoyed all the ones I’ve picked up. I started reading it as a teen when I was perusing the library and stumbled upon a book I liked.
Since then I’ve been drawn to memoirs and so much more. The majority of the nonfiction I read is true crime, related to memoirs on topics I enjoy, books about the opioid crisis, and books about parenting. I will pick up any nonfiction which interests me though.
The four prompts for this year are:
Olive explains them more in the video, but I’m going to share the books I’m planning to read for each prompt. I have six books picked out for the month, which seems very manageable since it’s a month long event. Here are the books I’ll be reading along with each prompt they fulfill.
I will also be reading:
Collapse by Jared Diamond- This discusses how societies succeed or fail, so I’m using it as the design of societies in regard to how well they prevail or fail.
Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus- I am using this one for voice because it’s got the ridiculous 90s voice, and I’m curious to see how absurd it’s going to be.
Empty Mansions- I am listening to this on audio so it works well for voice since the audio book contains the voice of the subject of the book.
Killers of the Flower Moon and Karla- They are both true crime books.
Lethal Marriage- This talks about the toxic marriage of Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo, and I’m doing it for sport because of the games they played with each other and how they acquired their victims.
I’m highly looking forward to this month of nonfiction November, and I can’t wait to see what others will be reading. Will be participating? Let me know what you plan to read if you are, or if you may be thinking about it.
Until I rant about books again,
