Non-Fiction Books I Want To Read

Lately I have really been branching out on what I read and have developed more interests for a variety of books. There are quite a few books that have been on my radar or on my shelves that I really want to read. The only problem is it always seems to take me longer to read through non-fiction, but I am usually always really happy after I do. There is always so much to learn from them about life, the world and even yourself. I would love for any other recommendations people have to offer.

I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq by Stephen Knizer

Notorious RBG by Irin Carmon

The Witches by Stacy Schiff

The Impossible Will Take A Little While by Paul Rogat Loeb

Into The Wild by Jon Krakauer

All The Single Ladies by Rebecca Traister

Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff

Top Ten Tuesday|Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016

2015 BOOKS READ-5

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic hosted by Broke and Bookish is Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016. I haven’t read many books this year, therefore this list is kind of short.

♦ Victoria Schwab

3099544

I owe a few of her books but I have yet to read any others besides This Savage Song. I absolutely adored this book and loved Schwab’s writing. I am loving forward to reading more by her soon!

♥ Kaled Hosseini 

569

I do not even know where to begin with this man. His book was brilliant, beautiful and emotional. I read Kite Runner and could not control my emotions. There is such a personal touch to the writing. I am making it my mission to read the rest of his published work in 2017.

♦ Brandon Sanderson 

38550

This man is a writing phenomenon and a god of fantasy writing. This is another author I have heard nothing but amazing things about. I also want to work on reading all of his published works. There are so many and he puts out at least 1 a year!

What are the best new to you authors you read this year?

2015 BOOKS READ-5

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday topic hosted by Broke and Bookish is Holiday Gift Guide for those trying to break into New Adult.

 

 

17900545

♦ Rule by Jay Crownover

This is a great book that starts off a series based on a group of friends and their relationships. The story of the relationship between Rule and Shaw was not an insta love or easy one. There was depth and lots of hot moments.  

24954150

♦ Beautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren 

This book has not only great romantic relationships but also great friendships and sibling relationships. It had a lot going on with college and football and followed the different characters lives.

18505845

♦ All Lined Up (Rusk University) by Cora Carmack

I have really enjoyed all of the books out in this series so far. It involves college and football and hot guys whats not to love! With this series much like the Marked Men series focuses on one relationship each book but you learn about other characters and they reappear throughout the series.

16096824

♦ A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

This is a great transition into New Adult. I think it falls into the category between YA and NA. It is fantasy and a beautiful read. The writing is amazing and the story is even better. It has fae, hot guys and is a retelling of beauty and the beast.

I want it that way

♦ I Want It That Way by Ann Aguirre 

This book reminded me of my time in college and hit on so many aspects of life that happen during those year in school, it provided even more evidence that some guys with children are just too adorable (Dilf status!)

What books would you recommend for people holiday shopping?
