NonFiction November Week 2: Fiction/Non-Fiction Pairings

Fiction/Nonfiction Book Pairing : This week, pair up a nonfiction book with a fiction title. It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.

I am going to manage to sneak in this post just in time before the week ends. I did not get this far last year because I struggled to come up with appropriate books to fit. This time too, I ended up reading non-fiction that fell under similar themes but I decided to instead pair non-fiction that I listed earlier with books that are borderline non-fiction. Once I narrowed that down, I found it easier to make the connections. I have linked the cover to the original reviews. In some cases, it might be the writing style, and in others the content itself.

  1. Good pairings! I struggle with this one every year, and then I posted my two on Monday and promptly read a really good pair I could have used – so I’m writing up a post about them to use NEXT November!
