I know it’s not quite the end of the year yet, but I’m not planning to read any more non-fiction in 2022, so it’s fairly safe for me to reveal my top picks here.
In 3rd place…
Yes, The Queen by Andrew Morton. A beautiful book and I did learn a lot about her life. I especially found the part about her childhood interesting and her experiences during WWII.
In 2nd place ….
Michelle Morgan is THE foremost expert on Marilyn Monroe for me. I have been a fan of Marilyn for about 35 years now and I am so impressed by Michelle’s level of research in her books and how she manages to find new people to interview. This book is another triumph!
And it was close, but in 1st place, my top non-fiction read of 2022 is …..
Amanda Prowse is best known for her fiction, but this memoir is so candid, so powerful and incredibly uplifting and heartwarming. This was the only book I read in 2022 – of the 126 I’ve read to date – which received a perfect 10 out of 10 from me.
