#NonficNov: Wishlist Additions

#NonficNov: Wishlist Additions

I’ve enjoyed spending the month pootling round new blogs and hearing about many interesting books. There’s a mix here of books bloggers have recommended, ones I’ve just stumbled across this month and a few from the Goodreads Choice Awards lists. I’m sorry I haven’t linked to the blogs I found these on here, but my laptop’s been blue screening and I’ve just not had the time. But if you see a book your mentioned in your posts this month here, be sure that you influenced me!

I’ve come to realise that US and UK non-fiction is much more separate than fiction for some reason. There’s a few books I’ve added to my wishlist that are US only and I’ll be keeping my eyes out for UK publishers picking them up.*

This week is hosted by Emerald City Book Reviews.

    Many new books…. Adrift: The Secret Life of London Waterways intrigues me! I hope you enjoy Tim Cope's book. I fell in love with his dog and horse, such loyal companions on this long, hard journey.

    I've been wanting to read Voices From Chernobyl as well.

    I Contain Multitudes is definitely going on my list. Great title and subtitle, as well as an important and fascinating topic.

    Some of these are probably from me. At least I read a bunch of them in the middle and I highly recommend them! If you review the food books like Truffle Boy and Locally Laid please link up to my Foodies Read collection on the first of the month. I want to know what you think.

    So many good choices here! I recently added A Thousband Naked Strangers to my TBR. Sounds like a great read! Plus that title! : )
