Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. This week, we’re talking books from X genre you’ve recently added to your to-read list. I went with non-fiction, so let’s get into it!
Unfiltered by Lily Collins // I adore Lily Collins, so obviously I had to add her book to my to-read list. I also like the concept of it: her just being honest about her life, the things she has done and whether she regrets any of it.
Eat Sweat Play by Anna Kessel // I think I saw this on Ely’s Goodreads? Anyway, it sounded really interesting! I think it’s about women in sports. I’ve been meaning to pick sports back up this year, so I’m intrigued.
Worth It by Amanda Steinberg // From what I’ve gathered, this is a book about finance – more specifically, your finances (instead of just the general economy). This sounds quite interesting, and I can wait to see what she has to say.
Unbowed by Wangari Maathai // This book is about Wangari Maathai’s life as a political activist, feminist, and environmentalist in Kenya! Sounds like something I need to read, and someone I need to know more about.
Body Positive Power by Megan Jayne Crabbe // I love Megan, and I’ve been following her Instagram account for ages. I immediately added her book to my to-read list after the announcement came! I can’t wait to read it in the fall.
Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil DeGrasse Tyson // I don’t need to explain this one. It looks like an epic non-fiction book.
The Silk Roads by Peter Frankopan // I don’t think I have to explain what this is about? I have a very limited knowledge of the Silk Roads though, so this seems like the perfect read for me!
Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World by Jace Weatherford // Again, I feel like the title is pretty self-explanatory. I definitely need to brush op on my knowledge of Genghis Khan because I know only a basic amount.
The Inheritance by Niki Kapsambelis // This is about a family’s struggle dealing with Alzheimer’s disease. I’ve been interested in dementia and Alzheimer’s for quite a few years now, and have faced it in my family. So I want to read about a family who is going through this.
The Polygamist’s Daughter by Anna LeBaron // I am weirdly fascinated by cults, mostly because I just don’t understand. So I’m always interested in reading about someone’s experience with them. I find this especially intriguing because Anna was only a child.
YAY for my first Top Ten Tuesday in quite a while! So those are 10 non-fiction books I’ve added to my to-read list lately. Have you read any of these? Which non-fiction books did you add to your TBR recently?
