Top Ten NonFiction on my TBR
Another off-topic TTT this week. The Non-Fiction Novemeber readathon always catches my eye at this time of year but, in all honestly, I’ll be lucky if I manage one NF book this month (or any month really). I do often see interesting looking non-fiction (and I’ve a fair few unread on my Kindle and shelves) but I just always get caught up in the exciting novels I want to read, so it’s slow progress.
Here are ten non-fiction books I hope I’ll get to read eventually.
Lives of the Courtesans: Portraits of the Renaissance by Lynne Lawner
Wedlock: The True Story of the Disastrous Marriage and Remarkable Divorce of Mary Eleanor Bowes, Countess of Strathmore by Wendy Moore
The Covent Garden Ladies: the book that inspired BBC2’s ‘Harlots’ by Hallie Rubenhold
The Imperial Harem: Women and Sovereignty in the Ottoman Empire by Leslie P. Peirce
The Once and Future Queen: Guinevere in Arthurian Legend by Nicole Evelina
Immodest Acts: The Life of a Lesbian Nun in Renaissance Italy by Judith C. Brown
Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death and Art by Rebecca Wragg Sykes
The Fall of the House of Byron: Scandal and Seduction in Georgian England by Emily Brand
Courtesans and Fishcakes: The Consuming Passions by James Davidson
The Beauty and the Terror by Catherine Fletcher
