Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Can’t Believe I Read

30 Jan

I created this list exclusively of nonfiction titles because I don’t often read a lot of nonfiction and these subjects are ones that I was surprised I picked up to read, but truly enjoyed! Middle grade and young adult nonfiction titles are really interesting now with narrative and facts, break out boxes filled with fun facts and so much more. If you haven’t looked at these accessible titles for kids (and adults!) check out some of the truly interesting topics I learned about in these books.
