Nonfiction November is here, and Kim from Sophisticated Dorkiness is hosting this first week out. My year in non-fiction has been good. It’s been a little odd for me. I’ve taken the time to seek out a TON of non-fiction this year, actually, though having the drive and time to read it all is a neverending struggle.
Let’s start with the books I’ve actually read:
The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish
Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance by Barack Obama
Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church by Rachel Held Evans (re-read)
Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again by Rachel Held Evans
Cold Tangerines: Celebrating the Extraordinary Nature of Everyday Life by Shauna Niequist
Be Prepared by Vera Brosgol
Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith by Sarah Bessey
Smile by Raina Telgemeier
I’ve been on fire for a few different topics this year including spiritual memoirs and deep dives into faith and Christianity. I’ve also, as always, been interested in topics related to social justice, women’s issues, feminism, race in America, and my other long-standing interests. My Kindle has a gazillion (not really joking) samples on it, just waiting for me to find the next great book.
These are a few of the books I’m in the middle of:
A People Called Episcopalians: A Brief Introduction to Our Way of Live, Revised by John H. Westerhoff III and Sharon Ely Peterson
We Were Eight Years in Power by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower by Brittny Cooper
The Words and Works of Jesus Christ: A Study of the Life of Christ by Dwight J. Pentecost
