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!

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).

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
