I had some list of what I plan to read last year and I want to continue the same this year. This is the first My TBR List of the year. I am not sure if I will read all the books or not, it depends on how much time I have, what I need to read for my studies, and so on. Yesterday I finished Obama’s memoir and today it feels like a fresh start. I still have Crime and Punishment to finish, after I stopped reading it last year, but I am not sure if I will finish it in the next 3 months, so I will not include it in this list.
The books are not in a particular order, with the exception of the first book, which I will start reading today. I wrote a sentence or two about each book. You will be able to see the reviews for them on my book blog, Coffee and Books.
My TBR List #1. List of books:
As I mentioned, I will start reading Secret Casualties of World War Two. Uncovering the Civilian Deaths by Friendly Fire by Simon Webb* today. The topic is fascinating and I read a few books by Webb, which tells that I will enjoy this book a lot.
Michael Schumacher by Pino Allievi was a gift from my husband, for Christmas. I’ve been a Schumacher fan for many years and I am so excited to read this book. The book is written in both English and Italian and it has many wonderful pictures.
The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Jonathan Haidt is a book I wanted to read for a while. Haidt is Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University’s Stern School of Business.
I found A Force To Be Reckoned With: A History of the Women’s Institute by Jane Robinson in a book store and I was drawn to it because of its cover. As I will study the 20th century British history from this term, I think this will make for a very interesting read.
Privacy is Power. Why and How You Should Take Back Control of Your Data by Carissa Véliz is one of the books on privacy and data ethics I plan to read. Véliz teaches at Oxford, at Hertford College and at the Institute for Ethics in AI.
I bought A Life on Our Planet: My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future by David Attenborough last year and I wanted to read it in the Christmas break, but I did not have time, so I will read it this month.
Luckily I could pick Agent Sonya by Ben Macintyre from the library before the lockdown. It is a non-fiction book about a Russian spy living in Britain. Sounds pretty fascinating, doesn’t it?
The Proposal by Mary Balogh is the first book in a series and the only fiction book in my list. I like Balogh’s writing style and I will get the other books in the series too.
