Now if you read my 2018 reading goals, you’d know I said I wasn’t making TBRs anymore but that was just monthly TBRs, as I never stick to them as I’m a huge mood reader. However, I never read outside of my comfort zone so I am hoping to change that, that was another of my goals. I did a post on the Classics I want to read, now to go even more out of my comfort zone and go for Non-Fiction!
I very rarely read Non-Fiction and it’s not because I don’t like it, it’s just I never tend to pick it up and it also takes me so much longer to read. So I am making an effort to read it more since there are actually quite a few I want to read.
These are in no particular order:
First up is Shockaholic by Carrie Fisher, if you know me then you know I a huge Star Wars fan. (I’m completely obsessed) Carrie Fisher is a huge idol of mine, I’ve read three of her books so far, I’m trying to get to all her books particularly her memoirs. She is SO funny, her books make me laugh so much. I just bought this so I am hoping to get to Shockaholic ASAP!
The next book I’d like to read is Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge.
I’ve been meaning to pick this up for a while, it sounds like a really important read. I hear a lot about race issues in the US but hardly anything about the UK so I’m really interested in this topic!
The next book on this list is Daemon Voices by Philip Pullman. This is another most likely book I’ll read from this list soon since I already own it. I won this in a twitter giveaway in December and haven’t got around to reading it yet! I really need to pick this up.
I love Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy so I’m really interested in his essays on storytelling.
And of course, I had to include a feminist book Women & Power: A Manifesto by Mary Beard. I don’t know a lot about this but I’ve heard really great things about many of Mary Beard’s books.
Last but not least I would like to read Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by
That’s it for my Non-Fiction TBR. Let me know if you’ve read any of these books and what you think. Also, let me know what non-fiction books you want to read!
*Update – Since writing this post, a few weeks ago, I have actually read Shockaholic by Carrie Fisher and I’ve started Daemon Voices by Philip Pullman!
