My Nonfiction November Reading List

Here are the nonfiction books from my TBR pile I hope to read in November.  Click on the title to view the book description on Goodreads.

In A Time of Monsters: Travels Through A Middle East in Revolt by Emma Sky – this one, won in a Readers First giveaway has been on my shelf for too long.  It promises to make ‘a complex region more comprehensible’.  I shall look forward to that.

Chanel’s Riviera: Peace and War on the Cote d’Azur by Anne De Courcy – I’ve been listening to the audio book of this since hearing the author speak about the book at Henley Literary Festival.  Read and reviewed

Augustus by John Buchan – my Buchan of the Month for November is this biography of the Roman Emperor, Octavian.

There’s Something About Darcy by Gabrielle Malcolm – I’m taking part in the blog tour for this book in November in which the author ‘examines Jane Austen’s influences in creating Darcy’s potent mix of brooding Gothic hero, aristocratic elitist and romantic Regency man of action’. Read and reviewed

The Outrun by Amy Liptrot – This is a book I received in a Reading in Heels subscription box but haven’t as yet found time to read.  In it the author ‘discovers how the wild can restore life and renew hope’. Sounds like something we could all do with in these times.

  1. The Darcy book sounds interesting – I’m imagining it will have a strong social history basis which I love.
    I’m not making a list – I know I will fail to read any of them! But my goal is to finish Becoming by Michelle Obama

    1. I definitely have to read the Darcy one as I’m on the blog tour and I’m cheating a bit with Chanel’s Riviera as I’m over 3/4 through that one 😀 I love making the lists but usually fail dismally at sticking to them. The triumph of hope over experience, to coin a phrase.
