Friday Fives | Non-fiction Books to Read in 2021

Posted January 1, 2021 by TheNonbinaryLibrarian in friday fives / 0 Comments

I started #FridayFavorites back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. In December, I decided to change it to #FridayFives instead to have more room for topics. If anyone wants to join me, the list for future topics can be found here.

As we look towards the new year, there is always something to learn and ways to grow. Here is a list of non-fiction books that are coming out in 2021 that I’m adding to my TBR.

I loved Call Me By Your Name, so I’m excited to read his essays on time, the creative mind, and great works from the past.


A shattering, utterly immersive work of investigative journalism, Faleiro slips behind political maneuvering, caste systems and codes of honour in a village in northern India to tell the real story behind the tragic deaths of two teenage girls and an epidemic of violence against women.


A chronological account of four hundred years of Black America as told by ninety of America’s leading Black writers.


The gripping true story, told here for the first time, of the Last Call Killer and the gay community of New York City that he preyed upon.


This poetic, genre-bending work—blending memoir with cultural history—Nadia Owusu grapples with the fault lines of identity, the meaning of home, black womanhood, and the ripple effects, both personal and generational, of emotional trauma.


Happy Reading Darlings!
