It’s Nonfiction November, and NCLS is celebrating on our Instagram account! Follow along with other accounts using the hashtag #nonfictionbookparty or check out What’s Nonfiction for a weekly tour. Lit Hub also takes a look at noteworthy nonfiction out this month.
In other November news, we’ve got picks from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, GMA, Entertainment Weekly, The Millions, and NPR. For all you genre fans, we’ve got romance from SBTB, horror and fantasy from Tor, novels from CrimeReads, and sci fi from Gizmodo.
We are officially at the place where the best of the year lists start coming out, and there’s no better place to start than with the Publishers Weekly Best of 2021, broken out by genre and with over 10 years’ worth of previous lists to scope out.
In awards news, the Kirkus Prize winners have been announced, and the Carnegie shortlists are out!
Looking for pop culture tie-ins? Check out these reading recommendations for fans of Squid Game and Dune.
Finally, #MondayReads: I have been reading the way I’ve been prepping for the holidays, which is to say, with abandon. Right now, I’m tag-teaming Everyone in This Room Will Someday Be Dead and Once There Were Wolves, because those are the two that absolutely have to go back next week. In the hierarchy of reads, non-renewable library books first. (And yes, I just googled ‘Hierarchy of Reads’ to prove that anything clever I can think of already exists on the internet. Confirmed.) Happy reading!
