Although increasingly popular, non-fiction doesn’t get the attention it deserves, and it can be difficult to discover the right memoir, business or history book for you. Not to worry, there are avid book bloggers for every genre out there; you just have to know which voices to listen to and where to find them. To save you time, we’ve done the hard work for you and compiled five of the best non-fiction book blogs out there.

Non-fiction Detectives 

A rare resource: a book blog focusing on non-fiction children’s books! Non-fiction children’s books have been on the rise this year, as schoolchildren become more active in campaigning and activism.
