Non-Fiction November Tentative TBR

Good morning my loves!

Today’s post is the first one that’ll be going up post-unintentional-hiatus thing that when on. Having recently realised that working full time (in a pretty intense job), study for my law degree, trying to read enough books to review and writing five posts a week is just not something I can keep up indefinitely. I would love to be able to do so, but I know that I’ll end up completely burning out. So, here we are. Day one of my new posting schedule, which by the way, will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday every week, with added extra for the occasional blog tour etc.

After that little preamble, I’m coming at you with my tentative TBR for this year’s Non-Fiction November. I’ve done so many readathon’s over the recent months I’ve decided to gather up a load of the unread non-fiction that I have rather than restricting myself. Gives me a little more wiggle room, me being the mood reader that I am.

Educated by Tara Westover // From Here to Eternity by Caitlin Dougherty // The Secret Barrister by The Secret Barrister // How To Survive a Plague by David France // The Fact of a Body by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich // The Diary of A Bookseller by Shaun Bythell


The Radium Girls by Kate Moore // Jane Austen at Home by Lucy Worsley // American Fire by Monica Hesse // The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe // Bad Pharma by Ben Goldacre // Misogynation by Laura Bates


I’m hoping to get to most of these before the end of the month, but with all of my other commitments I think a reasonable number would half. I am however looking forward to reading all of these and would hope to get them all read sooner rather than later. Are you planning on joining in with Non-Fiction November? I’d love to know if you are and what you’re planning on reading. Let me know in the comments below!

Peace and pages

  1. The Diary of a Bookseller is a nonfiction book I read at the start of this year and really enjoyed – quite light & witty; one I’d recommend to all readers to be honest. From your tentative TBR, I’ve added The End of Your Life Book Club to my own wishlist; a new to me title with a blurb that really intrigues me. I’m taking part in nonfiction November for the first time this year, and have Educated as my main read for the month.

    I hope you’re able to enjoy some of these titles in the coming month, and good luck with your new schedule.

      I am really looking forward to reading The Diary of a Bookseller – lots of friends have said it’s a fun read! I hadn’t heard of it before a couple of weeks ago and I’m sure it’s going to be lovely and heartbreaking in equal parts. Oh, I’m looking forward to Educated too! You’ll have to let me know what you think!

      Thank you 😁


  2. You have amazing picks here! Are you planning to read nonfiction only in November? There are so many that I want to get to too (and I just added the Diary of a Bookseller in my TBR) but I feel like fiction always calls me

      I’m going to try to stick to just non-fiction this month but won’t limit myself. If I need a fiction to break it up I’ll definitely do that. This is my chance to lower the number of non-fiction of books on my TBR 😂
