Books I am Excited About

I have been trying to use the library more this year and I just picked up several books that I am super excited to read!

Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning-I love the Fever series!  This is the last book and after the major cliff hanger at the end of Dreamfever, I can't wait to dive into this one!

Auschwitz:  A New History by Laurence Rees-This isn't a newly published book but I just recently heard about it.  It's supposed to include interviews from survivors as well as the Nazis working at the camp.  I am really interested in the Holocaust and World War II and am curious to see what this book brings to the table. 

A Woman Nobly Planned:  Fact and Myth in the Legacy of Flora MacDonald by John J. Toffey:  The Outlander series really turned me on to Scottish history as well as the history of the Scottish Highlanders in America.  I found Flora MacDonald to be an intriguing figure in the series and am looking to learning more about her.

In the Garden of Beasts:  Love, Terror and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin by Erik Larson-I am on a very long library waiting list for this book and I haven't decided if I want to break down and buy it or not.  I think the premise of the book sounds fascinating and as I said above, I am really interested in that period in history.  I also liked Larson's Devil in the White City so I think this could be a really good read.
