Non-Fiction (General) Round Up: March 2021

Non-Fiction (General) Round Up: March 2021

Hello Readers! For Non-Fiction in March there was: 16 reviews, 13 reviewers, and 15 books reviewed (4 poetry). Excitingly, 8 of the books reviewed this month were completely new to the AWW database. So a big thank you! The most prolific reviewer was: Tegan Edwards (me 😱) with 3 books reviewed. The most reviewed title this month was: The Husband Poisoner (2021) by Tanya Bretherton which was reviewed twice. As always, click on the coloured quote from a review to be taken directly to it. And a quick reminder: this round up includes poetry submissions despite their not being non-fiction. It just came out in the wash that way! Perhaps one day we’ll have enough poetry reviews to give them their own round up (it’s not wishful thinking, I swear).
