Hi, guys! 🌸
Welcome back to another post in which I scream about amazing books!
Before I get to the recommendations; some of you have noticed my absence here since last week, and I just wanted to let you know that I’m in fact on a little hiatus for personal reasons, but I miss you all a lot, and I hope you’re all well, and reading amazing books!
I hope I’ll be able to be more active again soon, reply to all of your comments and wonderful messages, and bless my eyes and mind with all of your guys’ amazing posts. ❤️
It’s been quite some time since I last wrote a book recommendations blog post*, and I’m really excited about this one—not only because many of you have been asking for non-fiction recommendations, but also, because I’m always eager to bring more attention to books that don’t get as much as I feel they deserve.
*You can find my other book recommendation posts here!
I only consciously started reading more diversely in terms of genres a little over a year ago, but I’ve quickly found that I enjoy non-fiction immensely, so here are a few books in this genre that I would, without hesitation, recommend to everyone—and especially those who’d like to start getting into reading more non-fiction.
This post is dedicated to May (you know why! 💗) and everyone who left an comment on an earlier blog post of mine, saying that they’d love some non-fiction book recommendations—I hope you find some books that you like here!! 🤗
We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I will always do my best to spread more awareness about social issues, and feature books that have great feminist messages, and this books is one that I strongly encourage everyone to read at least once in their lives.
(It’s also the first book I ever posted a review of here on my blog!)
Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jeremy McCarter
Hamilton: The Revolution is mainly for everyone who loves Hamilton (the musical), but even if don’t (yet), it makes for a really great read, and it’s so, so inspiring.
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
This book is one that would be shelved in the “self-help” section in bookstores, and I’ve noticed that, for some unknown reason, many people are very quick to dismiss them, and say things like “I don’t need these kinds of books” in a slightly derisive manner.
Regardless, I stumbled upon this book by accident, and, to be honest, only read it because I didn’t have any other books with me on my flight, but I was left in complete and utter awe by it; I highlighted so many paragraphs, and stopped to reflect on them—and I still love to re-read them every once in a while, and remind myself not to take everything to heart so easily, and focus on the things that truly matter.
