Woot! October was another decent month (7 books read, 23 comics) and now things are about to get crazy up in here.
So, I don’t even remember if it’s still a thing but almost every year I’d see people participating in Nonfiction November, in which you binge on nonfiction for the month. Well, for the first time ever I actually remembered that before November hit, so I’m doing it whether it’s a “official” thing or not.
Now, this is kind of horrible timing because I’m doing quite a bit of travelling this month, plus Thanksgiving at the end of the month, but whatever I’m gonna try to do it. And I have a couple novels here, for easy plane and bed reading.
- Do You Want to Start a Scandal by Tessa Dare – Everyone has been praising this romance novel, so I finally bought it. I don’t buy much romance in paperback anymore, but I was at the bookstore and it sounds great, so why not. It was funny seeing the look on my husband’s face though when he saw it.
- Devil in a Blue Dress by Walter Mosley – I’d love to fit this in before Book Riot Live in mid-November, since Walter Mosley will be there!
- I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual by Luvvie Ajayi – Funny lady calls people out on their shitty behavior. This should be a riot.
- For Her Own Good: Two Centuries of the Experts’ Advice to Women by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deidre English – I’ve been wanting to read this book for AGES.
- Invisible Man, Got the Whole World Watching by Mychal Denzel Smith – Finally diving into this, and I’m sure it will be fantastic as I keep hearing.
- Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterly – I have this on audiobook too, I really want to read it before seeing the movie.
- Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology by Jim Al-Khalili and Joe McFadden – Quantum biology! I started reading the first chapter the other night, I’m really looking forward to diving in.
- The Future of the Mind by Michio Kaku – I can’t believe I haven’t read this yet, it came out so long ago and I love Michio Kaku’s books.
Damn, non-fiction needs to chill with these long damn titles. OH and there’s a book coming out in paperback today, Plucked by Rebecca M. Herzig, that I’d like to grab and read as well. It’s about the history of hair removal / grooming and it sounds amazing.
So, what’s on your radar this month?
