My Year In Non-fiction Books

I read 12 non-fiction books this year. This number seriously surprised me, it’s a big chunk of all the books I read in 2017. I didn’t realize that I chosen so many non-fiction books this year. Topic of those books are really diverse, there’s book about Japanese art of getting rid of stuff (instead of cleaning and nicely storing stuff), book about last year’s elections in USA, books about faeries, polish immigrants in UK, Isle of Man, body image, shame and many others. Wow, I definitely learned a lot of new stuff thanks to those books. Here comes the list of all the non-fiction books I read this year sorted by rating I gave them.

– 1 star –

Non of the non fiction books I read this year was so bad that it deserved one start rating, at least in my opinion.

– 2 stars –

– 3 stars –

– 4 stars –

– 5 stars –

What great non-fiction books have you read this year?

    There are so many books on this list that I’ve been wanting to read, especially A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions. Glad you had a great year in non-fiction! 🙂

    Non-fiction seem to be my kryptonite. It’s odd because I have gotten some intriguing non-fiction that I REALLY want to read, but then I just…don’t. One of my goals for 2018 is one non-fiction read per month.

    So you didn’t intentionally focus on reading non-fiction? Your brain was in the mood to learn this year! Do you think you’ll continue with the non-fiction trend in 2018?

    Happy Holidays!

      I had no plan to read so much non fiction, I always thought that non fiction is not really for me. But somehow I found all the interesting non fiction books that I really wanted to read. And I think I’ll read more non fiction next year. I already have few books lined up.

      What non fiction you plan to read in January?

      Happy holidays to you too!

    Great idea to have a year with non-fiction books. Nice to try something different if you normally dont read these types of books.

    I’m addicted to psychology and business-related books 😉 Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin was one of the best I’ve read. The Mindset by Carol Dweck is my favourite book.
    Btw, I’ve recently wrote about book covers – maybe you have a moment to have a look? Do you judge a book by its cover? Do you choose your books based on that sometimes?
