Nonfiction November 2022: New to My TBR

It’s hard to believe it, but Nonfiction November is coming to a close. However, that’s okay because Week Five might be my favorite topic.

New to My TBR (November 28-Devember 2): 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!

After a month filled with sharing all the great nonfiction we’ve all been reading, this week, brought to us by Jaymi at The OC BookGirl, is all about highlighting the many books I’ve added to my TBR pile.

This year, y’all have really outdone yourselves. I ambled into this month thinking I would show self-restraint and hold off on grabbing each and every book that looked slightly interesting (as is my typical default during Nonfiction November). Yeah, didn’t happen. Even though I read a lot of nonfiction, you all kept featuring books I wasn’t familiar with and that are now sitting on my TBR pile.

So, a big thanks from me for all the great reads I can’t wait to get to … and a big groan from my bookshelf.

  1. Wow, two from me, I’m honoured! What a great month this has been. I have managed not to add too many to my wishlist (mainly because I’ve seen a lot of good nonfic posts through the year, having added so many bloggers over my few years of nonficnov!) but it’s been wonderful taking part and reading everyone else’s posts!

    1. Honestly, I could have added several more of yours (and I’m sure I’ll go back and pick up a few). You always find the most interesting nonfiction—I always look forward to seeing your posts. So glad you participated this year!

  3. I have many more books on my wishlist now but these were my New to my TBR pile at the beginning of the month.

    Thank you so much for everything you have done for Non-fiction Novembefr and for reading non-fiction books in general.

    1. And thank you for participating! It was a bit of a hectic month for me, but chatting about nonfiction and reading your posts made everything a little nicer.

      1. What a kind thing to say, Christopher. I always enjoy your posts, so it’s nice to know that you enjoy mine.

        Hope your next month won’t be as hectic and you can have a peaceful Christmas.

  4. You certainly FAILED on the TBR list restraint, Christopher! And that, my friend, is the danger of reading blogs. Your list is varied, and I must say, very inviting. I wonder how many of them will make an appearance on Nonfiction November 2023 (in addition to newly published books that you can’t pass up!). I read some nonfiction, but not a lot; I am always interested in seeing your November posts.

    1. This was a failure from beginning to end! But one that I’m willing to manage. I pulled away from nonfiction after college, but it’s back in my life at full force. I have a feeling I’ll be writing about a few of these next year.
