This post is all about non-fiction, and I do love some non-fiction. So let's give it up to some great genres in non-fiction.
I absolutely love Cookbooks and Memoirs, especially celebrity biographies. I have reviewed tons of cookbooks on the blog and only a few memoirs. 
There is one non-fiction memoir book that always sticks with me, and you may have heard me discuss it before. It's called, Life, In Spite of Me by Kristen Jane Anderson and Tricia Goyer. This is still one of the most powerful memoirs I have ever read. This girls' story of a suicide gone wrong, is truly incredible and inspiring. I highly recommend it to anyone, especially teen girls.

So not a very big post, I really only wanted to brag about one book. So tell me, what are your go-to non-fiction books???

  1. I really enjoy non-fiction now. I used to have a hard time picking any non-fiction book up, but once you kind of figure out what topics you're interested in, it becomes pretty natural. I've been having a ball with memoirs lately. And I love anything foodie related!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
