Ten Books on my Spring To be Read List


On today's Top Ten Tuesday, from The Broke and the Bookish, the theme is top ten books on my spring to be read list. Here are a few on my list. These are in no particular order


1. Finish what I'm reading currently: Jerusalem: The Biography by Simon Sebag Montefiore

This book explores Jerusalem from its ancient foundations to the present. Each of the major religions as well as empires are examined.














2. The Ancient Paths: Discovering the Lost Map of Celtic Europe by Graham Robb

This book dives into pre-Roman Europe, exploring the Celts who peopled the lands.
















3. Titans of History by Simon Sebag Montefiore

This book presents the major figures of history and explains why they are important and what they are known for.














4.The Revenge of Geography: What the Map Tells Us About Coming Conflicts and the Battle Against Fate by Robert D. Kaplan

I'm looking forward to reading this book on how geography influences history.
















5. Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

I'm intrigued by this book which studies how we think in two ways- both fast and instinctual and slower and deliberately.














6. Among the Mad: Maisie Dobbs #6 by Jacqueline Winspear

I've enjoyed the first five Maisie Dobbs books (a female detective and psychologist in the 1920s and 1930s in London) and I'm looking forward to continuing her adventures with her.



















7. The American West by Dee Brown

Native Americans, ranchers and cowboys- this book explores each of the narratives of the formative figures of the American west.

















8.Emma by Jane Austen

I'm familiar with this story.  This and Mansfield Park are the last two of Jane Austen's books that I haven't yet read.

















9. The Irish Princess by Karen Harper

This is a story about the Tudors told from an Irish perspective. It sounds interesting!


















10. Your work! www.ExtraInkEdits.com









Have you read any of these books? What's on your to be read list? How do you decide what next to read?

My best to you all,
Megan

  1. You are going to love Emma! It and Persuasion are my two favorite JA novels.

    Lots of other interesting books here too. The Revenge of Geography looks fascinating.

  2. These all look really interesting. I love the cover for The Ancient Paths. I haven't read Emma yet either, but I hope I get to it soon. Hope you have a lovely spring and happy reading! :)
