Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly challenge hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and this week’s challenge is about my favorite narrative nonfiction!
The topic for this week was a freebie, so I decided to highlight some of my favorite narrative nonfiction. My goal for this year was to read more nonfiction (since it’s not a genre that I typically read much of), and I’ve discovered that I actually really love narrative nonfiction! This include sub-genres such as biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. Memoirs in particular are my favorite. Without further ado, here are my top 10 choices for narrative nonfiction (in no particular order)!

2. Born A Crime by Trevor Noah
3. I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

5. Know My Name by Chanel Miller
6. The Devil’s Highway by Luis Alberto Urrea

Born a crime is a favorite! Trevor has such a unique and comedic voice. Have you seen his talk shows?
Born a Crime was such a good read.

I haven’t read any of these, but have wanted to read Noah’s so it was nice to see it here.
The Glass Castle was so good. My older daughter had to read it in school and it infuriated her, which I think is a good thing. Hahaha.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
I have several of these on my list…but I don’t really read that much non-fiction, so it is going to take me a minute. I will agree with everyone that Born a Crime was brilliant.

I loved Born a Crime. The Glass Castle is on my TBR. Happy reading! My TTT https://readwithstefani.com/10-middle-grade-fantasy-books-set-in-winter-and-christmas-book-recommendations/
I have not read any of these. I think the world’s strongest librarian looks interesting. https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2021/12/top-ten-tuesday-free-little-library.html
I love listening to audiobook memoirs where it’s narrated by the author. I feel you get a much better sense of what the author intended and it’s like listening to a friend tell their story.
I haven’t read any of these, but my oldest daughter read Unbroken and enjoyed it.
