November — Nonfiction Month

I actually had another theme in mind for this month, then I was reminded that November is National Nonfiction Month so I knew I just had  to get involved!

This month I will be focusing on these two books…

I started Five Days at Memorial in early September, then when my focus shifted to my Halloween titles this was set aside.  While I’m only 100 pages in, I am completely immersed in this account of the tragedy that took place at this Louisiana hospital in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and the doctors who were put on trial after having to make many difficult and painful decisions.

Raechel Anne Jolie tells her story of childhood trauma and alternative lifestyle in Rust Belt Femme.  I’m a big fan of memoirs where the average person overcomes trauma and life obstacles and learns to be true to themselves.  I will be featuring this one both here and at MrPinkInk at the end of the month (November 27-ish).

Goodreads Group Reads

A couple of books stood out for November’s group reads.  The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared is one that my friend’s local book club has chosen.  I’m going to try to fit it in since I’ve had this copy sitting on my shelf for a couple of years now…no more excuses!  And as for The Last House on Needless Street?  After just recently finishing it, I can’t recommend it enough to be added to your to-read list!

What are your reading goals for the month?  Drop me a line and let’s talk books!  Until next time, stay safe and Happy Reading!
