Books I Read in May
Rated out of 4 📚
- •Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow📚📚📚📚 I bought this book in some sale at Barnes and Noble at least 6 years ago and it's been waiting on my shelf ever since. Thanks to Lin-Manuel Miranda, I was finally ready to tackle it and I'm so glad.
- •Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda📚📚📚📚 This tells the story of creating and producing the play interspersed with the annotated libretto. Probably the closest I'll get to actually seeing the play.
- •Founding Brothers by Joseph Ellis📚📚📚 So I got on a bit of a revolutionary kick in May (technically I'm still on it). It's been fun for me to read a lot of books on one topic and feel like I'm really getting it!
- •The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty📚📚📚📚 Took a history break to read for my book clubs, starting with this one. I absolutely loved it! After this and reading What Alice Forgot a couple months ago, I'm officially a fan and will be reading all her other books soon.
- •The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion📚📚📚📚 I read this for the first time a few years ago and I recommend it to others often. It's sweet, funny, and an easy read.
- •1776 by David McCullough📚📚📚 Focused a ton on specifics of lots of battles and less on anything else that happened during that year, which isn't what I was expecting. Still good though!
