New to my TBR
hosted by Jaymi @ The OC Book Girl

New to My TBR : 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!

November ended up being more busy than expected, so I didn’t visit as many bloggers as intended. But looking back at the nonfiction books I added on my TBR in Nonfiction November 2021, I realized I only read 3 out of 17.
So I guess it’s not a bad thing I’m not adding as many this year!
Here they are, with the blog where I found them:


1. Thirteen Ways to Smell a Tree: Getting to know trees through the language of scent, by David George Haskell

A Web of Stories

2. The Dark Queens: The Bloody Rivalry that Forged the Medieval World by Shelley Puhak

Book’d Out

3. The Nocturnal Brain: Nightmares, Neuroscience, and the Secret World of Sleep, by Guy Leschziner

Let’s read

4. The Silk Roads: A New History of the World, by Peter Frankopan


5. Gastro Obscura: A Food Adventurer’s Guide, by Cecily Wong
6. I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life, by Ed Yong

What’s Nonfiction?

7. The Return of the Russian Leviathan, by Sergei Medvedev

This November, I actually added 6 more titles, but the source was not participants in Nonfiction November:

  1. The Song of the Cell: An Exploration of Medicine and the New Human, by Siddhartha Mukherjee
  2. Web3 Simplified – A Beginners Guide to Blockchain, Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency, NFT’s, the Metaverse and more, by Steve Sarner
  3. The Art of Memory, by Frances A. Yates
  4. Englishwoman in America, by Isabella Lucy Bird
  5. The Life of Isabella Bird, by Anna M. Stoddart
  6. Six Walks in the Fictional Woods, by Umberto Eco

  1. Nice ones, and glad you found some good books to add to your wishlist. I’m not counting ones I found on non NonFicNov posts but that’s a good idea! I also haven’t done much with the ones I listed last year – I’ll have an update on it all on Friday as I often find I pick up stuff from other people’s New to my TBR posts!


  2. I Contain Multitudes is excellent! I actually have not added much to my TBR because I still have so many from past years to get around to. I did add The Disordered Cosmos from She Seeks Nonfiction — looks like a really unusual read.


  3. I read the Frances Yates book way back in the last century, and still have my copies of The Art of Memory and her The Rosicrucian Enlightenment to revisit sometime! All very, um, enlightening… 😁
