Links I Loved This Week On Novels And Nonfiction


  • Book Riot posted a much needed list of 45+ Book Cures For Your Post Election Hangover. As a Wellesley woman and a human being, I am disappointed and scared after Tuesday’s election results, but continuing to hope for a better future. (Book Riot is also running a Kindle Voyage giveaway, which might provide a small ray of sunshine in your day).
  • The contributions of those in the book blog world that focused on diverse books are more important than ever in this frightening post-election reality. Lauren at Wonderless Reviews completed the Diverse Books Tag listing different books she’d recommend in 11 diversity categories. There are good recommendations to continue to diversify and broaden your reading.

  • The topic for Week 2 of Nonfiction November was intriguing, asking book bloggers the question “What Do You Look For In Nonfiction?”. Personally, I’m all about history or science and a transporting narrative style. Find out what Heather at Based On A True Story, Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity, Amanda at The Paperback Princess, and JoAnn at Lakeside Musing answered and what titles they’d recommend.
  • I work in television and I was really interested to read Bookshelves & Birospost on books that you’ll like if you enjoy shows like Stranger Things or American Horror Story on Netflix. It’s definitely an original post idea and I think TV watching tastes are absolutely relevant to reading tastes.
  • Speaking of television, we’re just a few weeks away from the premiere of a new season of Gilmore Girls on Netflix, and Modern Mrs. Darcy published a very timely retrospective on key books featured in the series throughout the years (predictably a lot of classics, but not only).

  • I posted a review of serial killer thriller Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin on Monday. It was a great page turner and hit the right spot in terms of being chilling but not too frightening.
  • I’m late on the review I planned to publish this week for Rebecca Traister’s book All The Single Ladies about the history and importance of unmarried women in America. I’m still reading the book and considering its theme and the unfortunate but historical times we’re living in, I wanted to make sure that I did it justice by not rushing through it. I am delaying my review of it till Monday for maximum visibility, since it’s an important topic.
  • I only have one other review post planned for next week but it should be a fun one for Nonfiction November. I’m planning a Nonfiction Vs. Fiction comparison for two November 2016 releases – Victoria: The Queen by Julia Baird and Victoria by Daisy Goodwin – both about the life of Queen Victoria but one factual and one fictionalized.

    I am so glad that you reminded me about Nonfiction November!! The start of this month was a bit rough for me, and I certainly got off the bandwagon. I have some reviews to post!
