Lovely selection Hayley! xx
Thank you 🙂 xx
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
I adored Notes to Self as well! Happy New Year Hayley x
It’s such a brilliant read, isn’t it? I’m so pleased that you loved it too. Happy new year to you too x
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.
I didn’t read as much non-fiction in 2020 as I normally do but of the books I did read there were a lot of excellent ones. I Hope to read more this year once this pesky reading slump is properly gone. Thank you 🙂 x
I just finished In Black and White this morning – really enjoyed it!
It’s such a good book, isn’t it? I’m pleased you enjoyed it too.
I’ve got the Andrew Ridgeley book, can’t wait to read it. You should read the Bananarama memoir x
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Ooh I must get the Bananarama memoir, it sounds like such a good read. x
I’ve got the Andrew Ridgeley book, really need to read it!! Have you got the Bananarama memoir? X
It’s a really good read, I loved it. I. just got the Bananarama memoir for my birthday this week and I plan on reading it next, I can’t wait. x
my favourite non-fiction I read last year was Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton
I’ve heard good things about that one, I’ll add it to my wish list. I’m pleased you enjoyed it so much. 🙂
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.
I hope you manage to read more nonfiction this year, I enjoyed all the books in this post and hope to read more nonfiction this year too.
I am going to try to read at least this year. One a month, but January is almost over.
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.
