  1. They all look great. I am intrigued by ‘In black and white. I didn’t read any non-fiction novels in 2020 but I hope to squeeze 1 or 2 into my TBR this year.

    Happy New Year, Hayley.

    • In Black and White is a really interesting book about a young black woman training to become a barrister, I definitely recommend it. I hope you manage to read some non-fiction this year. I didn’t read as much as I would have liked to in 2020 so I have quite a lot on my TBR to choose from this year.
      Happy new year to you too! 🙂 x

  2. I really admire the way you’ve made time for non-fiction as well as fiction in your reading, Hayley. I sometimes don’t read nearly as much non-fiction as I ought to. Your choices are great, too, with a wide range.

  3. My goal had been to read 12 nonfiction in 2020, but only got in 9. I hope to try for 12 this year and I will be checking out some of the ones you have listed here Hayley. It looks like there are some great choices here.

  4. Some great ones there and some on my TBR (Black and British and In Black and White). I was chuffed to see the Andrew Ridgeley in there and funny to think of you reading something I’d been involved in! Happy non-fic reading for 2021!

    • I didn’t know you were involved with the Andrew Ridgeley book! I really enjoyed it, it was such a lovely read and made for a great start to my reading year in 2020. Black and British is an excellent read, I learnt so much from it. Thank you, I hope to read a lot more non-fiction this year.
