I literally only read books on social justice, poverty, biographies, systemic racism, urban education, memoirs, etc. but I'm trying to read one nonfiction and one fiction book each month. need recommendations!
  1. currently reading January's book: Girl At War by Sara Noviet, mostly because it's about a girl named Ana and I'm narcissistic like that
  2. need more recommendations!
  3. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
    Best book I read last year.
    Suggested by @xtineengels
  4. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
    one of the best writers in fiction today, he has such a way with words and an unbelievable ability to write across genres/eras/narrators seamlessly
    Suggested by @nathanielrepay
  5. "A Visit from the Goon Squad" by Jennifer Egan
    A modern classic
    Suggested by @theranman
  6. "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
    An all-time classic suitable for any age. I could re-read (or re-listen to) this every few weeks and get something new from it.

  7. "American Wife" by Curtis Sittenfeld
    I recommend this because oddly it almost hits several of your genres but not fully. It's part fiction, part non-fiction, part memoir, a little bit of social justice. It's a fantastic novel based loosely on the life of Laura Bush. While there are literary liberties taken, it is also carefully researched, and you will not think of Laura the same again.

  8. The Girl Who Fell From the Sky

    I think it's a good fiction companion to your non fiction interests. One of the best books I read last year.

  11. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
    Great WWII era page turner. Strong female lead character. Even better than All the Light We Cannot See.
