Nonfiction November – Book Pairings


For this second week of Nonfiction November, Sarah at Sarah’s Book Shelves is hosting the link-up of post highlighting fiction and nonfiction pairings. The prompt:

It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.

I love this question because I do this kind of reading all the time. In fact, it’s rare that I don’t have a fiction book and a non-fiction book going at the same time, and if one can help me to understand or get more out of the other, all the better.

Here are a few pairings that highlight books I have on my to-read list:




What about you? Do you like to read fiction and non-fiction that complement one another? What are some of your favorite book pairings?

    I also tend to pair fiction with nonfiction on the same topic, though not always at the same time. Sometimes, in fact, a couple of years go between the pairing. But often in reading historical fiction, I an introduced to something I didn’t know before and want to know more about it. That is a strong point of historical fiction for me! So I keep an eye out for more for more information about the topic. Sometimes that is simply Google and Wikipedia, but if I come across a book on the topic, I will take a look.
