A while ago, Orli at Blame My Bookshelf wrote a post called ‘Getting Into Non-Fiction.’ It got me thinking about some of the non-fiction titles I’m reading at the moment. I’m more of a fiction reader personally, but every once in a while I will read a fantastic non-fiction book, and today I thought I’d share some of my recent favourites.
In no particular order…
- I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai. I picked up this book back in September 2015, and I read the edition that had been re-written for teens. I was blown away by the passion that Malala showed in her fight for her education, and whilst I had a basic understanding of what Malala went through, I really was gripped by her story. This is by far one of my favourite non-fiction books that I’ve read for a while, and I was really inspired by the courage Malala showed.
- All I Know Now by Carrie Hope Fletcher. I’ve been a big fan of Carrie’s YouTube videos for a long time, and when I heard Carrie’s book was coming out, I was incredibly excited to say the least. Carrie’s book is amazing, and it offers plenty of useful advice for so many people. I really enjoyed it, and I am also looking forward to Carrie’s first fiction book coming out later this year!
- Mind Your Head by Juno Dawson. I featured this book in my ‘Mental Health In Books’ post, but it’s just so good as a reference guide for mental health, I couldn’t leave it out. Juno’s book takes on the topic of mental health in a really lighthearted but in a way that takes it seriously.
- Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig. I’m sure that anyone who read my Mental Health In Books post knows why this is featured, and anyone that has read the book will as well. But this book is just incredible. It offers a highly valuable insight into what Matt has experienced in his past, and offers you a hand that pulls you up and tells you that you most definitely are not alone.
