My TBR List #3 was planned for July, but it worked out pretty nicely considering that I have only 1 book left from the first TBR list and I’m reading a book from the second list. From the first list I had a DNF because it was not as good as I was expecting it to be.
As I finished my course, I will take a small break from history, as in I will read less in the next month or so. Instead I will focus on books with diverse topics that I didn’t have time to read because I was busy with my studies.
My TBR List #3. List of books:
I started reading Humankind by Rutger Bregman and I find it interesting. It’s one of those books that makes you think even if you don’t agree with what the author is saying or their overall assessment.
Fighting for the United States, Executed in Britain by Simon Webb is another book I started reading but I’ve decided to include in the list. It’s fascinating because it’s largely unknown. This is a review copy.
The only fiction book in this list is The Secret Agent by Elisabeth Hobbes. I read quite a few books by her, all historical fiction, but in other periods. I hope she will recreate the 1940s period just as good as she did the other periods in which her books take place.
Animal Farm by George Orwell is, of course, one of the books I planned to read but didn’t have the opportunity to. It’s been on my shelves for a couple of years and I should finally read it. I’ve read Homage to Catalonia by Orwell and I like his style, so I have high expectations from Animal Farm.
My husband read Weapons of Math Destruction: How Big Data Increases Inequality and Threatens Democracy by Cathy O’Neil and enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading the book too.
Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgment by Daniel Kahneman, Olivier Sibony, Cass R. Sunstein is a new book, published recently. Kahneman’s Thinking Fast and Slow was fascinating and I want to read that one again, so this book too comes with very high expectations.
