Nonfiction November Week 5

We’ve reached week five of Nonfiction November and I’m sharing the books I’ve added to my TBR. The OC BookGirl asks

“It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book!”

This month got busy so I haven’t made the rounds as much as I would have liked but I did add several books.

  1. I haven’t heard of most of these books, which is why I love Nonfiction November! Adding some to my TBR pile.

  2. Pandora’s Lab is one of Offit’s I haven’t read yet, but glad I could point you in his direction – I’ve loved everything else by him! Glad I could recommend you Gory Details and Tunnel 29 too, both are so good!

  3. I also fell a bit behind – in fact, I see a book on your list that I missed and now want to add to my list. LOL. The Whale in the Living Room.

    I am so excited you added two of my books! Lol. I hope you loved them as much as I did!
