This week’s theme for Non-Fiction November, brought to you by Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness and Lu at Regular Rumination, is pairing a non-fiction book together with a fiction book. Easy, right? That’s what I thought until I gave it a try. Shannon over at River City Reading has the list I would have liked to come up with, but didn’t. Here is my offering:
The Hive by Gill Hornby. I loved this novel. It was funny and very real. Here’s my review. It was inspired by the Non-Fiction book Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman. More recently, Wiseman has also published Queen Bee Moms and Kingpin Dads. Both deal with the social pressures of fitting in. As an added bonus, I’m also including the movie Mean Girls (2004). Queen Bees and Wannabes also inspired Tina Fey to pen this movie.
