Book Stack :: Nonfiction November

I’m terrible at reading nonfiction. I didn’t realise quite how little of it I read until I was looking through my Goodreads shelves to see what titles I’d read lately and saw that I haven’t read a single nonfiction book this year, and I think I only one or maybe two last year.
For the past week or so my Instagram feed has been filled with photos my friends are sharing of their tbr stacks for nonfiction November, and I’ve been inspired to make more of an effort to pick up some of the nonfiction books I’ve been meaning to read. I came up with this little selection of books to dip into for the rest of the month. Click on the titles to go to the Goodreads page and find out more about each one.

Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia  – Edited by Anita Heiss
I have read bits and pieces of this one, and all the pieces are fantastic so I really want to actually finish it.

Last Christmas – Edited by Greg Wise and Emma Thompson
This book is a companion to the movie, which I’m also super keen to see.
I was kindly sent this copy by Hachette Australia for review.

Arab Australian Other – Edited by Randa Abdel-Fattah and Sara Saleh
I picked this up when it came out and have heard wonderful things about it.

The Saturday Portraits – Maxine Beneba Clarke
This one was also sent to me for review by Hachette Australia.
I love Maxine Beneba Clarke’s writing, so I’m really excited to have this in my hands. It comes out this week (12 November)

IMPERFECT – Lee Kofman
Affirm Press sent me this one for review after Lee Kofman reached out to see if I’d be interested. It is about “how our bodies shape the people we become”, and I’m really interested to read it.

So that’s my nonfiction stack for the next little while. I’m hoping to increase my nonfiction reads next year, so I’d love any recommendations of your favourites in the comments!
