A Will to Kill / My Beijing / To all the Boys I've Loved Before | Thoughts

Over the past couple of months, I've read a few books that I didn't get a chance to review yet. These were all enjoyable in different ways and are recommended reads. A Will to Kill by R. V. Raman I've been looking for an Indian mystery for a while now. So when I came across A Will to Kill in Netgalley set in one of my favorite places in India (also close to my home town), I just had to request it. In so many ways, this is a typical Agatha Christie type mystery - there's a death (in an isolated mansion, no less) and the investigator/detective tries to solve the mystery. Harith Athreya is visiting the owner of the mansion, Bhaskar Fernandez, where a small gathering has been planned for the owner's relatives and friends. Bhaskar has written two wills - and how he dies will determine which will goes into effect. That night, there is a murder and Athreya spends the next few days trying to find the culprit. I generally enjoy the Agatha Christie class of murder mysteries.

In my TBR this month | Nonfiction November

This is the last week of Nonfiction November - this may only be my second time actually following through for all four weeks of this event. Which is great - because I discovered some amazing blogs and several excellent nonfiction titles this month.

Doing Dewey is hosting the week and she's asking - 

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!



I picked up a ton of recommendations this month - these six are the ones I am most looking forward to reading. 


Pandemic Solidarity by Marina Sitrin and Rebecca Solnit - discovered over at Monika's Lovely Bookshelf - she has several similar books recommended in her post, and I'll admit I TBR'd almost all of them. 

Doughnut Economics by Kate Raworth - Unsolicited Feedback has several other books on this topic but this one in particular caught my eye.

I Have Something to Tell You by Chasten Buttigieg - this isn't a new to me book but reading about it on Based on a True Story made me want to read it myself.

Wham! by Andrew Ridgeley - Almost every song by George Michael takes me through nostalgia lane - I can probably tell you where I was when I listened to some of his songs for the first time, and so I was glad to see this book mentioned at books are my favourite and best

There's no Such Thing as Bad Weather by Linda Åkeson McGurk - only the day before I saw this book on Paperback Princess did I learn about this Scandinavian saying "there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes" on a knitting podcast. Obviously, as a knitter, that quote speaks to me but I also loved all the other meanings this quote could have.

The Only Plane in the Sky by Garrett M. Graff - this is also not a new to me book but I appreciated the reminder at Helen's Book Blog and hope to pick it sooner rather than later. 


What's the number one nonfiction book you discovered this month?
