I started Friday Fives 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 Friday Fives instead to have more room for topics.
I love reading nonfiction to learn and expand my thinking! Here are some nonfiction books that I think everyone should read at some point in their life.
I first heard about this book watching the documentary 13th, which I also highly recommend. This was a book that was eye-opening and horrifying. Definitely, definitely something that needs to be read to understand our prison system more and why it needs to be reformed.
This was not only an informative book but also read like a story. Elizabeth Wein is a wonderful storyteller, and I learned about a side of WWII that usually isn’t taught in the United States.
Another wonderful writer who blends learning and storytelling to tell what businesses are willing to do no matter what.
This book was so informative and fascinating! I’ve always had an interesting relationship with death but this made me rethink about my own death and what I want to happen to my body.
I learned and laughed a lot while reading this book! Mary Roach definitely knows how to make a difficult topic funny. Absolutely fascinating!
Happy Reading Darlings!
