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
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!
