I don’t read enough non-fiction. Maybe it has something to do with just wanting to escape reality when I pick up a book. Maybe it’s the trauma from teaching non-fiction for standardized tests for nearly 10 years. But this year, I’m adding more non-fiction to my reading goals.
Notice I didn’t say TBR pile. I rebuke TBR piles.
Here are the top 3 non-fic books I plan to read this year. Or at some point in the future. I promise…
Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay: I love Bad Feminist, and I love that Roxane Gay is so upfront about everything really. So, I’m looking forward to an unapologetic take on food and body image.
Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates: This one I’ve actually started, but haven’t been in the right mindset to finish it. And already I can tell you that I’ve lived a sheltered existence and this book is opening my eyes to how not woke I’ve been for a long time.
Negroland: A Memoir by Margo Jefferson: Reading this on the recommendation of one of my favorite authors. Hoping to get real insight on intersectional feminism and respectability politics, based on the description
