2017 In Review: Lisa Marie’s Ten Favorite Non-Fiction Books of 2017


A word about Paperbacks From Hell, my favorite nonfiction book of 2017.  One of my goals for 2018 (and probably 2019, as well) is to read every single book mentioned in Paberbacks From Hell.  I’ve been told that it won’t be easy because several of the books are apparently no longer in print.  But that’s okay.  I’m looking forward to searching for them almost as much as I’m looking forward to reading them!

  1. Paperbacks From Hell by Grady Hendrix
  2. Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life by Ruth Franklin
  3. Broad Strokes: Fifty Women Who Made Art and Made History (in that order) by Bridget Quinn
  4. Mrs. Sherlock Holmes by Brad Ricca
  5. We’ll Always Have Casablanca: The Legend and Afterlife of Hollywood’s Most Beloved Film by Noah Isenberg
  6. Ava Gardner: A Life in the Movies by Anthony Uzarowski and Kendra Bean
  7. How To Murder Your Life by Cat Marnell
  8. Black Dahlia, Red Rose: The Crime, Corruption, and Cover-Up of America’s Greatest Unsolved Murder by Piu  Eatwell
  9. High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic by Glenn Frankel
  10. The Apparitionists: A Tale of Phantoms, Fraud, Photography, and the Man Who Captured Lincoln’s Ghost by Peter Manseau

On Wednesday, I’ll be listing my picks for the best of Lifetime and then, on Friday, I’ll finally wrap up my look back at 2017 with my picks for the best 26 movies of the year!
