Women’s History Books to Read for Women’s History Month

Last month, I shared some history or historical books to read for Black History Month (or anytime, really). So, I thought I’d do the same thing for Women’s History Month! I stuck to books I’ve read and feel confident recommending (most of the books recommended under the main suggestions are books still on my TBR). […]

Book Review | The Trial of Lizzie Borden

I was a strange kid who was fascinated by both space and weird historical events. One of those weird historical events was the Borden murders. I don’t remember the first time I learned about them – I probably heard the rhyme and looked it up – but I’ve been interested ever since. Obviously, I couldn’t […]

Book Review | Impeachment: An American History

It’s all about how literature shaped the world as we know it – something I think […]

Book Review | Queens of the Conquest

This summer, I renewed my minor obsession with Alison Weir and medieval and Tudor history. So, naturally, I had to pick up her newest book, Queens of the Conquest. (How she released two amazing books this year is beyond me.) It is a nonfiction book about England’s medieval queens, and it turned out to be a […]

Book Review | Hidden Figures

This month, I finally finished a book I’ve been wanting to read for a very long time: Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. I’ve seen the film adaptation (multiple times), but I thought it was time I read the book. And it was one of the most valuable history books I’ve read (and that’s coming from […]
