Links I Loved This Week – 11/04/2016

Links I Loved This Week On Novels And Nonfiction


  • I also saw some of my favorite nonfiction titles recommended or reviewed, including And The Band Played On about the history of AIDS research on Travel Far, and the Scientology memoir by Leah Remini Troublemaker on B. B. Toady. Nonfiction November just seems like a gift tailor-made for me that keeps on giving.
  • Voting has started for the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards. It’s such a cool concept to bring book lovers together to get a popular vote on the hottest titles of the year. I was pretty ashamed to see that I haven’t read any of the novels on the Best Fiction list, though I own a few of them. The only category where I felt confident voting for now was Historical Fiction, where I painfully voted for To The Bright Edge Of The World by Eowyn Ivey over A Gentleman In Moscow by Amor Towles, though it was a very close call.

  • I had intended on posting my list of 12 November 2016 Book Releases I’m Really Looking Forward To on Monday, but illness and a busy work week meant that I ended up publishing it on Wednesday. I’m particularly excited to read both the nonfiction and the fiction titles on the list about Queen Victoria and writing a joint Nonfiction Vs. Fiction post about them in a couple of weeks.
  • On Thursday I published my first review for Nonfiction November on astronaut Mike Massimino’s memoir Spaceman. I loved the book and would highly recommend it to all lovers of memoirs and those interested in reading about space exploration.
  • I’m planning two Just Read book reviews for this coming week – Black Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin on Monday and All The Single Ladies by Rebecca Traister on Thursday (for Nonfiction November and also in honor of the election, fingers crossed).
  • I will also be publishing reviews of my October 2016 Book Of The Month selections on Tuesday. I finished Enchanted Islands by Allison Amend a few weeks ago, am now reading The Witches: Salem 1962 by Stacy Schiff and am planning on getting to The Wonder by Emma Donoghue this weekend.
