Non-fiction books that I must read in 2021 – Listed!

Not that I have been the perfect example of sticking to a TBR, I have had a list in my head and have been wanting to check these specific non-fiction books off my list for a while. I have been reading and enjoying more and more non-fiction books, especially political subjects, recently and just find them a great way to broaden my horizon and freshen up on a little knowledge 🙂 – so here’s a list of all the non-fiction must reads for me for the year to come!

A Promised Land by Barack Obama

A Promised Land: Amazon.de: Obama, Barack: Fremdsprachige Bücher

I have read a few excerpts in newspaper articles and have been loving Obama’s insights to some chapters on Instagram – before the book was published, he used to always share a picture and then write about a special moment of his Presidency, one he mentions in his book as well. I’ve always been fascinated by his personality and visions, and have been a big supporter of his political agenda – and so my dad gifted me his book as soon as it was published. And I can’t wait to read it – only problem: 900 pages and I need a lot of time for that.

Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez

Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men: Amazon.de:  Perez, Caroline Criado: Fremdsprachige Bücher

My dad got me this book as well: I’ve heard of it, it’s supposed to be one of the best non-fiction books of 2019. I have never been a big activist when it comes to feminism, I’ve obviously always supported it, but I’ve never read a book about it and I realized: that has to be changed. Merely the subtitle Exposing data bias in a world designed for men should have every woman listening closely because it affects all of us. I’ve read the introduction and I can’t wait to find out more – it affects so many areas in our lives we never knew were affected by sexism, the author writes, and I am dying to find out everything…

Factfulness by Hans Rosling

Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About The World - And Why Things Are  Better Than You Think: Amazon.de: Rosling, Hans, Rosling, Ola, Rosling  Rönnlund, Anna: Fremdsprachige Bücher

There’s a classmate in my politics course who often reads the same books as I do, in terms of non-fiction, and he’s always told me to read this specific book as he often uses the facts presented here when arguing in a discussion. And it was only yesterday that I spoke to a good friend of my mothers, who’s a politician and has also read this books: he said that while so many things are going on, this book actually warned about a global pandemic and the fact that the world was not prepared for it – and what do we have now? Simply the fact that I talked to him about this book, and he’s an inspiring person, has said enough about the fact that I will have to read it in 2021.

The Room where it happened by John Bolton

The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir: Amazon.de: Bolton, John  R.: Fremdsprachige Bücher

Celebrating that the White House will soon be free of that idiot, it’s time to read the book that has been hyped for so long: I also read the introduction a while ago and just having a tiny bit of insight, had to roll my eyes because that man is so incredibly STUPID and NARCISSISTIC – let’s just celebrate Biden and Harris.

Joe Biden – any recommendations?

Joe Biden says 'no time to waste' as climate team unveiled - BBC News

I really want to read a book about Joe Biden, I’ve watched a documentary with my best friend a while ago, and realized there is so much to learn about him and his past political career that I must read some sort of book – either written by Biden or about him! So: if any of you read something, let me know!!

That’s it – quite enough non-fiction books to keep me occupied for a while! But I’m always searching for gems, so comment if you’ve read any other great non-fiction books lately! Happy reading and happy holidays – 2021 here we come!

  1. Interesting list Jane. I’m currently making my may very slowly through the audiobook of Promised Land, but I agree that it’s huge and gonna take me a long while to get done.
    I would highly recommend Invisible Women though and be prepared to be outraged.

    1. Thanks so much! And omg do you like A Promised Land so far? And ahhhh then I really can’t wait to read Invisible Women – I kind of had the feeling that I wouldn’t get through that book without an outburst at some point…
      Happy reading 🙂

  2. I need to find me a copy of Invisible Women, since I love anything talking about sexism and feminism. I have a feeling I will get really angry halfway through and end up ranting and or throwing the book across the room 😅
