Non fiction list 2018

I'm working on 30 goals for 2018 and one of them is to read non fiction, at least 6 of them. I got the idea since I'm reading The art of asking by Amanda Palmer right now and stumbled upon Marina Abramović book Walk through walls which I immediately wanted to read. So, I wanted to read books written by unusual women.

At first I had this super goal of 12 books. I realised that would probably be a bit hard since I had a trouble finding books in the same spirit as Amanda's and Marina's plus the fact that I rarely enjoy non fiction (oh so many times I've bought non fiction just for it to collect dust).

Thanks to Good Reads I gathered 7 books that seemed interesting and I sat my goal to 6 books, if I read more great and if not great too.

The books I'm hoping to read this year:
  1. The art of asking by Amanda Palmer
  2. Walk through walls by Marina Abramovic
  3. #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso
  4. Wild by Cheryl Strayed
  5. I'll never write my memoirs by Grace Jones
  6. First they killed my father by Loung Ung
  7. Hunger by Roxane Gay
I'm hoping for at least one a month, but we'll see. Maybe some will take longer.

I picked these because they would give me new and different perspectives. Nr 6 I picked because I was intrigued when I saw interviews about the movie with Angelina Jolie and the author, so I picked it despite it maybe not fitting in with the rest.

With these books above, does anyone have a suggestion of another book? :)
