We all love fantasy books full of iconic adventures and golden romances, but bookworms sometimes forget about the power of non-fiction books. You either love or despise them, but non-fiction books are an asset to the book community because they indulge us in real-life stories.

Honestly, I avoid reading non-fictional books because I have been a fictional fan since I started reading. But that doesn’t stop me from checking out all the monthly released non-fiction books that the reading community is dying to read, and this March, there is a strong list ahead of us! If you are a non-fictional die-hard fan, here are some upcoming releases you will definitely be curling up in your book nook with.

Princess Diana’s younger brother Charles will take you on an emotional story of his experience in the school system at age eight. From personal struggles, homesickness, and the cruelty of the educational system, Charles deep dives into past diaries and letters to re-dissect his devastating times as a child. This is a not-miss book of 2024, I recommend buying this the day of its release. I imagine this being one of the best non-fiction books from this year and I highly encourage picking up a copy.

The Heart and the Chip: Our Bright Future with Robots by Daniela Rus and Gregory Mone (Releasing March 5th, 2024) 

Roboticist Daniela Rus and Science writer Gregory Mone will possibly change your opinion on the dangers of technological growth in our societal time. Most people believe that with technology and robots becoming more popular in our everyday lives, our society will soon crumble due to matters such as fewer job opportunities. But in this disputed opinionated piece, Rus and Mone will deepen your inner beliefs in the benefits of robots.

 Instead of taking away opportunities, they believe it will create more productivity and educational interest in ourselves. This book sounds like it will be a very different piece from most books on technology and its balance in society. If you find yourself curious about the incline of robotics in our everyday lives, be sure to pick up a copy and let us know your thoughts!
