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.
If the history of Alzheimer’s is scary, but fascinating
You can watch a grandmother and grandchild coming to terms with memory loss
If you liked the woman figuring out her role in dual identities
If fear is something that every being lives with
Then you might like this almost non-fiction story of a woman finding out if she belongs in any one culture
You can see how groups of people have taken it in their stride and how it influences their actions
If the progression of chemical warfare was shocking
You can read about the repercussions of some of those conflicts
