Recs for The Best Themed Book Month of the Year

It’s non-fiction November usually the happiest (book) time of year!

Okay here’s a confession I used to get non-fiction confused with fiction because naturally I thought non-fiction meant… not true and fiction was true. Obviously I figured that out. Sometime in college I think but otherwise I thought I’d recommend some good not fiction books I’ve read recently.

Talking to Strangers

Might as well start off nonfiction November with the one I read in October. I’m fascinated (and often confused) by communication period. But especially on social media and how that changes our ability to communicate with each other.

Talking to Strangers deals on a person to person basis not social media but I think it all really wraps in together.

Murderbots, Princesses & Aquaman is Coming! November Wrap-Up

November has come and gone and it was a pretty nice month. We had our annual Thanksgiving visit to Robolights house in Palm Springs where I- who endless complains about the hot weather and would move anywhere else- complained endlessly how cold I was.

December is here and the Aquaman press is already in full swing. Plus Venom will be streaming on the 11th. So it will be a very beautiful month entertainment wise.

A Pizza Made of Books

Slice Harvester

Slice Harvester: A Memoir in Pizza

By: Colin Atrophy Hagendorf

So I finally read Slice Harvester for Non-Fic November. It’s been on my TBR since it came out so I was pretty proud of myself.

Though in all honest I have mixed feelings on the book. Only the pizza in New York stuff interests me- and it was impressive the way he could write about pizza. If you are also interested in the punk scene go for it. Otherwise I thought I’d build my perfect pizza via books.

Non Fiction November Wrap-Up

Non Fiction November 2017

So I participated in Non-Fiction November which I heard about from the Youtube channel A Book Olive  whose also one of the people that run it. I generally like to read non-fiction books. But I’m very much a mood reader/whatever strikes my fancy and with being bombarded with so much other I felt like nonfiction was falling by the wayside.

All in all I didn’t do too badly this month.
