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 highlights achievements that inspire others and, in turn, inspires me to see the world in a new way! Building compassion, deepening understanding, and experiencing lives we’ll never live are some of our favorite reasons for reading.
The five books I’ve chosen for this post represent books that have helped me see the world in a new way.
Please join me for Nonfiction November 2022!

The Woman They Could Not Silence by Kate Moore
I think it’s important to understand and appreciate the shoulders upon which we (women) stand. It’s women like Elizabeth Packard that fought hard and at great personal sacrifice for certain women’s rights to be recognized. Reading about her experiences helps me appreciate early leaders in the fight for women’s rights.
An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield
Literally, Chris Hadfield has a different worldview than anyone reading this post! I love reading about his perspectives of Earth from space, and I appreciate his global scientific perspective and hearing about the cooperation with other countries to run the International Space Station. In his memoir, he uses his experiences in training and space flight to challenge our thoughts about success and helps us see our world from a different perspective.
From this year’s reading, I have the above two titles. However, two nonfiction titles I’ve read in the past certainly deserve mention here!
The Day the World Came to Town by Jim DeFede
What happened in Gander, Newfoundland on 9-11 is inspirational and provides a model of hospitality, sacrifice, and kindness for me and for the world! This book demonstrates that traditional values are alive and well in our modern times!
Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson
A call for compassion and change, Just Mercy shows me a world that I will never experience. I understand social justice from a new perspective after having pondered Stevenson’s thoughts.
The Choice: Embrace the Possible by Dr. Edith Eva Eger
Dr. Eger’s poignant and reflective memoir encourages me to understand forgiveness and choice in new ways.
Have you read a nonfiction book this year that changed how you see the world?

I have not read a nonfiction book this year that changed my life. I’ve read mostly memoirs, and that’s just for entertainment.
I read Lauren Graham’s new memoir last week which was entertaining! I’m a huge fan of hers from Gilmore Girls and Parenthood! This memoir wasn’t as good as her previous one however. But I love her snappy writing style.
I have The Day the World Came to Town on my list as well! And, of course, I have said here several times, that I am whipping through The Woman They Could not Silence – this book is amazing. I love your whole list.
Thanks Molly! The Woman They Could Not Silence is unputdownable!
Great post! I don’t read enough non-fiction. These all sound like great choices!
Thanks Tralyn! I’m always struggling to up my NF game!
Thoughtful choices, thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome! Thanks for commenting!
Just Mercy is one of my all-time favorite books. I just added the astronaut book to be Kindle samples. Thanks for the recommendations.
You’re welcome! Happy reading!
