To Be Read List for November 2019
Happy Nonfiction November! This month is dedicated to celebrating the oft overlooked nonfiction genre. I’m joining a group of book bloggers to devote our blog posts to nonfiction this month! You can check out my first post earlier this week discussing my nonfiction year in review. Go find out which was my favorite so far this year! As for my November TBR, I’m not at the point where I can read nonfiction for a WHOLE month 🙂 So, my November TBR list is going to include a mix of fiction and nonfiction. Here we go!

Become The Expert: Nonfiction Book List – Books About Space
A book list dedicated to the best books about one specific topic. Since I haven’t read a ton of nonfiction, I’ll be pulling together a list of books I want to read. The hard part is picking the topic!! Any suggestions?? I like history, so maybe a certain time period, person, or event…

What’s on your To Be Read List for November 2019?
To Be Read List for November 2019:
Rocket Men by Robert Kurson
Jay always gets mad at me because I keep calling this Rocket Boys haha. He read it earlier this year and loved it, so I’m looking forward to giving it a shot. It’s about the three astronauts on Apollo 8 and the first mission to the moon. Set against the backdrop of a tumultuous period in history and President Kennedy’s looming deadline, NASA risked everything on a Christmas launch.
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
EVERYONE raves about this book, so it’s time I finally read it. I keep hoping it will pop up on Scribd or Kindle Unlimited, but I’m planning to bite the bullet and get on my library’s waitlist. I hear the audiobook is phenomenal, so you can’t go wrong either reading or listening to Trevor’s memoir.
I’d Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel
I’m a big fan of Anne’s book blog, Modern Mrs Darcy and I was fascinated by her previous book, Reading People. So, I’m sure I’ll enjoy her second book just as much. I’d Rather Be Reading is a celebration of bookish delights, perfect for anyone who’s reading life is more than just a hobby. Lucky for me, it’s available now on Kindle Unlimited!! P.S. You can try a month for free with my link!
Timebound by Rysa Walker
I received an unexpected ARC of the first book in the Chronos Origins series coming out next year (Thanks Amazon Publishing!!!). So, I decided to go back to the original Chronos trilogy before reading the new release. Timebound is the first book in the series and I was thrilled to find it on Kindle Unlimited. PLUS! There are added graphics and animations in this version. How cool is that??

You will love Born a Crime!! The audiobook had me in tears, because at times it hilarious and other times it’s so moving. Definitely do it on audio if it’s an option!
Thanks for the suggestion!
Rocket Men sounds really interesting, I’ll have to check it out!
I’m excited to start it!
I have heard SO many good things about Born a Crime. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
Listen to the audiobook of Born a Crime. It’s definitely in my top 10 favorite books of all time. The first chapter knocks your socks off. I’m (un)patiently waiting for the movie to come out!
I didn’t realize it was going to be a movie!
Born a Crime has been on my list forever as well–I need to get my hands on the audio!
YES, literally everyone recommends it. I so rarely buy books but I might need to just bite the bullet and pay for the audio version.
Do Born a Crime on audio!! It took me a million years to get around to it too but I really wanted to, so I put listening to the audiobook on my 19 in 2019 list. And I loved it! He does voices so well, so that makes it extra fun. And also there are so many words in other languages that he pops in, which again makes it really nice to hear (otherwise my untrained brain will totally just skim them on paper).
