November is almost here. Fall is in full swing and families are preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving in a new way this year. November usually brings my reading taste more focused on Historical Fiction. I love a good historical fiction and tend to read stuff related to World War 2. I do prefer books that are well researched for the time and based on true events, it adds a level of realness to the stories in my mind. These are the books I am hoping to get to this month.
I am trying to patiently wait for my copy of the Invisible Life of Addie La Rue. I got a special edition and it is set to be shipping by the end of the October. I can not wait to get to this book! If you want a summary of what is about take a look at the New books of October post from earlier this month.
Uprising by Margaret Peterson Haddix
The story centers around 3 very different young women and how their lives intersect at the Triangle Waist Factory. It is more importantly about how their lives would be impacted on that day in March when the factory caught fire and destroyed the lives of my workers.
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
At the end of WW2 the lives of 3 children converge on the ship the Wilhelm Gustloff, which was their key to safety. Forced to unite when tragedy strikes they all need to fight for their survival.
Sepetys does an amazing job researching the events of her books so I am excited to try this book by her.
The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict
This books is focused around the life of Mitza Maric, brilliant physicist and the wife of Albert Einstein. She was at studying physics at an Elite Zurich university, focusing on math not marriage when she caught the eye of Albert Einstein. His interest would turn her world around and impact both of them. Their marriage becomes a partnership of the mind and of the heart, but there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage. But did she contribute to the special theory of relativity is more than what was said? Was she simply Einstein's sounding board, an assistant performing complex mathematical equations? Or did she contribute something more?
The last book is our book Club pick for the month. For more information on this title take a look at our book club section on our event page.
