Here are the books that I read but didn’t review last month! In November I participated in Nonfiction November and #HoHoHoRAT, which is why all of these are either nonfiction or Christmas themed!

GuRu by RuPaul: This is just a quick little book of wisdom and quotes from the amazing RuPaul. Plus tons of gorgeous photographs of him in drag. Very lovely book.
Stamped by Jason Reynolds: This was definitely and interesting read, covering racism from a new angle. It’s a great introduction to the topic for teenagers. However, the constant “this is not a history book” was super annoying. It’s a history book, deal with it.
You Can’t Touch My Hair by Phoebe Robinson: I had never heard of this author/actress before, I just liked the title. This is a collection of essays on racism, feminism, sexism, colorism, all of the -isms. I could definitely relate to a lot of it, but her humor wasn’t for me.
A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park: This one was a mix of fiction and nonfiction. It’s basically based on real events. It’s hard to believe that this is still going on in our world today.
Functional Anatomy of Yoga by David Keil: This is my favorite yoga anatomy book! It talks about the body in holistic terms, each piece works together. I’ve definitely taken some knowledge from here and applied to my asana practice as well was just everyday movements.
Love, Loss, and What We Ate by Padma Lakshmi: I loved Padma when I use to watch Top Chef, so I was excited to get to know more about her. This is mostly focused on her love life, which was wild! I had no idea!
Down the Rabbit Hole by Holly Madison: I never watched The Girls Next Door, but like much of the world, I was curious about what went on in the Playboy Mansion. Holly’s story was interesting, but she was definitely holding back and kind of playing the victim.
True Love for Christmas by D. Rose: This was a downer. I didn’t like it too much. It was just sad.
A Perfect Holiday Fling by Farrah Rochon: The heroine is the worst vet in the world and just made me angry.
Merry Inkmas by Talia Hibbert: This was sweeter than I expected! I enjoyed it though!
The Boss Who Stole Christmas by Jana Aston: This was so fun! It’s a hate-to-lust-to-love romance with a very special advent calendar.
