The Road to Dawn: Josiah Henson and the Story That Sparked the Civil War by Jared A. Brock
User review: This book should be required reading in school. Heartbreaking yet eye opening. This really shows the strength of one man. Such a brilliant read. Obviously, well researched.
Walter Schellenberg: The Memoirs of Hitler's Spymaster by Walter Schellenberg
User review: The content can be regarded as interesting, but his way of writing is really narcissistic... Excluding those parts of how he expostulated with Hitler and Himmler out of his "great insights", it's impossible to count how many times he mentioned that a lady/Mrs.spy fell into an inexplicable affecti...
Churchill, Hitler and "The Unnecessary War": How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World by Patrick J. Buchanan
User review: Hard to read a book unbiased which states in its introduction the pride one has over being part of the British empire. Certainly would have preferred not being under foreign rule for 200 years, over being the "world's largest democracy". We are still dealing with the aftermath.

Long story short: main character is a tour guide...
The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth, #1) by N.K. Jemisin
User review: I wanted to start reading a more diverse range of authors and just happened to see a list of scifi/fantasy by minority writers a month or two ago. I read the list, checked the summaries and ratings for some of the books, and put The Fifth Season audiobook on hold through my library. I also added...
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
User review: The book goes on at a very slow pace. Also, though it is a fictional book, many of the things in there are VERY unbelievable. The book does have some great one-liners and inspirational stuff, but overall, it's only a one-time read for me. I also think that the ending could have been better. Moreo...
Flying with Messengers by Berti M Bagdi
User review: From the first chapter I was captivated by the characters. There were times of laughter, sadness and tears. I loved every minute of reading both parts that were included in the book. What I enjoyed about the novel, was although we have Angels, Cherubs etc. in the mix of characters the story is of...
