Are you excited for any of these books too? Let me know in the comments!
Thank you for these tips. I see we have the same preference for nonfiction – history and its exciting tales.
Almost all nonfiction I read is related to history. Occasionally there will be something else but not often 😅
That’s great, the same for me. I find history so fascinating, although it seems we never learn anything. Philosopher Georg Hegel said: “The only thing that we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.”
George Bernard Shaw had the same thought. “If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.”
Sadly enough that’s all very true!
I swear, you find the best non fiction😁 These all sound good, especially Worn and Nectar of the Gods!
I do my best! 😆
Oh, nice non-fiction choices! The Duchess Countess looks very interesting~ Hope you enjoy these when they come out!
Sounds like she led a really interesting life!
I don’t keep up with nonfiction new releases as well as fiction ones, so thank you for this list! I’ll be looking forward to your reviews!
I can’t wait to read them all!
Witches, Heretics & Warrior Women sounds super good already! Hope you’ll enjoy all of these.
YES! That book sounds made for me.
