Nonfiction November is an opportunity to reflect on the year, to celebrate and appreciate nonfiction, and to share recommendations.
I LOVE a nonfiction book that reads like fiction!
I have two titles to highlight today (and many more in last year’s post).
This week’s prompt for Nonfiction November is Stranger Than Fiction. I am tweaking this topic because, for me, a favorite form of nonfiction is narrative nonfiction (nonfiction that reads like a story). There is nothing strange about these stories! However, you will notice that they read like fiction!
Please join me for Nonfiction November 2022!
Today’s host is Christopher at Plucked From the Stacks
Two Nonfiction Books That Read Like Fiction
***Book titles are Amazon affiliate links or links to my blog reviews
The Woman They Could Not Silence by Kate Moore
I had to remind myself during reading that this was nonfiction! If you wish you could read more nonfiction but are discouraged in your attempts, may I recommend you start with narrative nonfiction (reads like fiction) to whet your appetite! This one reads like a hisfic/thriller! I can envision it as a movie!
An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield
Although this is a memoir, it has some narrative nonfiction elements, and his space flight and adventures are amazing and jaw dropping! If you’ve read Project Hail Mary, this would be a perfect companion read (flight pick).
See Last Year’s Post for Many More Nonfiction Books That Read Like Fiction!
I would love to hear all about your favorite nonfiction that reads like fiction in the comments!

Happy Reading Book Friends!
“Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke
“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.”
~Denise J Hughes
“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.”

I really must get round to reading An astronaut’s guide as it sounds brilliant.
I loved it! He’s an amazing person!
I’ve ordered it from the library😀
I’m drawn to social history so the Kate Moore caught my attention.
My recommendation would be The Wicked Boy by Kate Summerscale
The Kate Moore is so very compelling and tragic! Thanks for your rec!
I like how you made the prompt your own, great picks Carol.
So true, Carol. Some non-fiction books read even more like a novel than many novels. I had so much fun to put together my Stranger Than Fiction list.
I’m hopping over to read your post!
Thanks for your answer. You appeared as anonymous but since you added your name, I know it was you.
