2016 in Review: Lisa Marie’s 10 Favorite Non-Fiction Books of 2016


My look back at the previous year continues with 10 of my favorite non-fiction books of 2016!  Now, it should be noted that, because this is an entertainment-related website, I’m only listing my favorite entertainment-related books.  There was a lot of good nonfiction published last year but the majority of it had nothing to do with either the movies or television so who cares?

Anyway, all of these are wonderful and well-worth the money!

  1. The Godfather Notebook by Francis Ford Coppola
  2. TV: The Book by Matt Zoller Seitz and Alan Sepinwall
  3. The Only Pirate at the Party by Lindsey Stirling
  4. Natalie Wood: Reflections on a Legendary Life by Manoah Bowman
  5. The Purple Diaries: Mary Astor and the Most Sensational Hollywood Scandal of the 1930s by Joseph Egan
  6. In Search of Lost Films by Phil Hall
  7. Down from the Attic: Rare Thrillers of the Silent Era through the 1950s by John T. Soister and Henry Nicolella
  8. Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life by Ruth Franklin
  9. The Curse of Beauty: The Scandalous & Tragic Life of Audrey Munson, America’s First Supermodel by James Bone
  10. A Thousand Cuts: The Bizarre Underground World of Collectors and Dealers Who Saved the Movies by Dennis Bartok and Jeff Joseph

Finally, I have to give an honorable mention to two books that were published in 2015 but which I didn’t read until 2016.  These two books were definitely my favorite non-fiction reads in 2016 and there’s no way that I couldn’t mention them.  Troy Howarth’s So Deadly, So Perverse and So Deadly, So Perverse Volume 2 contain everything you could possibly want to know about the giallo genre!


Tomorrow, my look back at 2016 continues with my favorite novels of the year!
