Nonfiction November is an opportunity to reflect on the year, to celebrate and appreciate nonfiction, and to share recommendations.

I LOVE curating a TBR and this month I’ve added two new titles to my nonfiction TBR.

Today’s prompt is hosted by Jaymi @ The OC BookGirl.

Finding Me by Viola Davies

(Memoir) I’ve seen Finding Me on many nonfiction lists recently. Wendy’s recommendation (the Bashful Bookworm) and Tonja’s enthusiasm (@booksnbikram on Instagram) led me to add this to my TBR.

Have I Told You This Already? by Lauren Graham

(Humorous Essays/Memoir) I adore Lauren Graham from Parenthood and Gilmore Girls. I’ve read Talking As Fast As I Can and knew I wanted to read her recent release because I enjoy her witty banter.  ***Disclosure: I read this the same day I put it on my TBR because it magically was available on Libby when I went to put it on hold. I think fans of Graham will want to read it, but honestly, I liked Talking As Fast As I Can better. Although her writing is still witty, fast-paced, and engaging, I think the content in her new release is a bit underwhelming. 3 Stars.

    • I think it’s a good read for a break from heavier fiction. She’s a good writer, but I fear she doesn’t have a great deal of content for this one!

  1. Thanks! I think you’ll enjoy Finding Me. It was highly recommended before I listened to it. I really want to read the Lauren Graham book now!
