Top 10 Tuesday Strupag

This week is a freebie week, so we all get to choose our own topic. After a bit of thought I’ve decided to go with

 

10 Non-Fiction Books I Want To Read Soon

 

I go through phases with non-fiction. I often become focused on one area and consume as much information as I can on that one topic. So, for this post I’ve tried to show a wide range of some of the non-fiction books I hope to read soon. Many of these are on my shelves, a couple of these I’ve actually started and some of them I’m planning to buy the next time I find some lose change hidden down the side of the sofa!

SPQR

This was released at the back end of 2015 and instantly caught my attention. Ancient Rome and the Romans fascinates me, but my knowledge is definitely lacking.

27 brief lessons in physics

I received a copy of this for Christmas and I can’t wait to read it. It’s just a short book but I think it will be an easy, interesting reading.

I won a copy of this over on the Vintage Vlog (if you don’t already subscribe, I highly recommend it). Given my recent interest in the Serial and Undisclosed podcasts, as well as the Making A Murder Netflix series I’m very intrigued to read this.

The Bookshop Book

I’ve actually already started this and it’s brilliant! I have it on my bedside table and dip into it every so often. Jen also has a fantastic BookTube channel which I highly recommend!

5

A Fortune-Teller Told Me

Speaking of Jen, she recommended this book on her channel quite some time ago. I am yet to get my hands on a copy but I will eventually as I really want to read this.

6

Persepolis

This is a non-fiction graphic novel, a memoir of Satrapi’s childhood growing up in Iran.

what if

What can I say? I’m a geek!

Mark Webber

I love sport so I enjoy reading autobiographies from sporting stars. Mark Webber is one of my favourites, I feel F1 misses him. I got this book for Christmas and can’t wait to read his story.

9

The RomanovsThis is Simon Sebag Montefiore’s latest book. In fact it’s out this week I believe. I have his book Jerusalem: The Biography and while I’m nowhere near finishing it (it’s HUGE), I find it very interesting.

How To Be Sick

I keep meaning to get my hands on this book. This isn’t generally the type of book I read, but I’ve read articles by Toni Bernhard which I’ve found very useful.

 

Have you read any of these titles?
