Non-fiction November 2019 | TBR

IMG_0327

Hello, it is away to be November tomorrow, which means that it’s time to take part in non-fiction November.

This is the first year I’ve ever taken part, I’m not normally one for a lot of non-fiction, but I thought it would give me a good opportunity to get through some of the books I’ve had on my shelves for ages.

I’m not going to be exclusively reading non-fiction, and I probably won’t be getting through all of these, but I wanted to share the ones I have on my shelf, and what I think I might get to at some point soon.

My favourites are memoirs, but I’ve tried to give myself a little bit of a range of things to read.

At the time of writing this (which is a little bit in advance of it going up because I fancy myself organised), I have 112.

Hello! It’s not my first post of the year, but it’s (hopefully) the first post back after a bit of a hiatus from me. Everyone speaks about creating new year’s resolutions at this time of the year, and although it’s getting on a bit in January, it’s still kind of relevant.

The only resolution I ever make is to read a certain number of books, which this year is set at 52 – one for every week of the year. Will I achieve it? Who knows.

May wrap up

I am getting really behind in writing blog posts (thank procrastination and work for that one) so I figured I’d post my May wrap up. Relatively on time! For once!

I think I read quite a respectable seven books in May, which is definitely better than my April effort, so I’m quite pleased with that.

Here’s the books I read:
