#NonficNov – Book Pairing

November 6, 2017 Uncategorized 16

This week, we have one of the discussion posts people seem to love the most every year – a chance to share your nonfiction and fiction book pairings! I know I always love this prompt, because it’s so fun to learn about a topic from nonfiction and then get a personal narrative by reading fiction on the same topic. For this discussion, the link-up is hosted by Sarah at Sarah’s Bookshelves, so be sure to share your post before the weekly round-up on Friday. Here’s the full prompt and my pairings:

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.

      Oh, I could see that making a great book club read! I’d had Brain On Fire on my list for a long time before I got to it, but I was glad when I did 🙂

      It’s my favorite prompt too! I always like seeing if I’ve read any nonfiction or fiction in the last year that will suddenly let me find the perfect pairing for something I couldn’t pair last November 🙂

      Thanks! I just saw that you paired it with Hunger and I’d guess that’s a closer match in terms of themes. I do like these two together as well though. They both have a similar feel to me in their brash response to the restrictions placed on women by society. I really need to get to Hunger too!

    Wait, Still Alice is fiction? Wow. I really thought it was a memoir. Haha. I think it’s because I haven’t read it; I’ve only seen the film and got it into my head that it was a true story.
