Top Ten Tuesday: New-to-Me Non-fiction

Happy Tuesday!! This week the wonderful bloggers of The Broke and the Bookish are focusing on books that we’ve recently discovered in specific genres. Today I’ll be sharing my list of ten non-fiction books that I recently added to my TBR list.Β I’m hoping to read quite a bit of non-fiction this summer, so this seems like a good starting place!

What non-fiction books have you recently added to your TBR list? What do you think of the books I’ve mentioned? Have any recommendations? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

HOLLY

    1. Ooooh I love books about books! That title sounds familiar (I feel like I’ve looked at it in bookshops a few times) so I’ll definitely add it to my TBR. Thanks so much for the recommendation πŸ™‚

  1. I don’t usually find myself reading non fiction but sometimes the temptation strikes me. The last one I bought was The Plantagenets: The Warrior Kings and Queens Who Made England
    by Dan Jones a couple months ago but I still haven’t picked it up. Maybe that sucker would get my out of my reading slump. Hhhmm….

    1. The Plantagenets sounds super interesting! (Also, I would love to hear how that word is pronounced haha). Sometimes a change of genre is good for a reading slump πŸ™‚

  2. What a great list! I have really been enjoying reading non-fiction. In the last week I finished Scratch, which is about the business side of writing, and Upstream, a whole lot of lovely essays by Mary Oliver. I just really enjoy non-fiction and now need some more, so I might read We Should All Be Feminists if the inclination strikes me.

    1. I love essay collections, so I might check out Upstream that you mentioned. I usually end up reading a lot more non-fiction during the summer months because I have more time to read longer/slower books that take their time.
      Thanks!! πŸ™‚

    1. I’m so glad to hear that it lives up to the hype!! I definitely need to organize my bedroom ASAP after moving back home from college so fingers crossed that it does the trick πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much! I always find that once I start reading non-fiction it gets the ball rolling and I keep wanting to read more– it’s just reading that first one that sometimes takes a while πŸ™‚

    1. I definitely agree– why make up a crazy story when there are so many interesting real ones out there? πŸ™‚ That title sounds so intriguing– I’ll have to check it out!

  4. Great list! I admit, I’m not a big non-fiction reader myself, but I would like to change that. I’ve heard really good things about several of those books on your list. I’ve been meaning to read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and We Should All Be Feminists for quite some time. I’ve also heard Eating Animals is really good, thought-provoking read!

  5. These are good, Holly. I have not heard of them but they are definitely worth the try (I checked them out on Goodreads). I have not added any non-fiction books recently.

  6. We Should All Be Feminists and The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up look really good. I want to read more nonfiction, like maybe about feminism or biographies of cool people

    1. I definitely want to read more biographies as well! Ron Chernow’s one of Alexander Hamilton is the most recent one I’ve read and it was fantastic.
