Top Ten Favorite Nonfiction Books


For this week’s top ten tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, I decided to pick ten of my favorite nonfiction books since I never really talk about that genre. This is a pretty varied list, but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each one. Let me know in the comments if you’ve read any of these books or have recommendations for me!

  1. So happy to see this list of fav nonfiction. Refreshing. I was afraid everyone was doing Fav Fantasy or Fav YA.

    I’d have to include a Bill Bryson here and Unbroken. Love Bowling Alone and…oops, I think I must save this for a post of my own. Not sure if I’ve ever made a list of my favorite nonfiction.

    Thank you for yours!

    Here’s my list: Favorite Foodie Narratives! Love to have you stop by!

  2. I’ve never read any of these, may have to check some of them out. King Leopold’s Ghost (about the colonisation of the Congo by Belgium and its aftereffects), by Adam Hoschild is amazing. Also The Reading Promise, by Alice Ozma is a wonderful, poigant book about books.

  3. I’ve read Ron Johnson’s “Psychopath Test”. It’s brilliant. All his books are because they come from a point of “I don’t know about this, but I want to.” He doesn’t pre-judge anything. And too, he is so honest and so funny, he can make even dark or heavy subjects seem delightful.
