Let’s start out by acknowledging that I’m going to acknowledge how late in the year it is at the beginning of every month from here on out. Like this is Month 07 of my 24 in 2014 series how why when!?
This month, I’m choosing two books from my recent Thriftbooks haul because I bought them so…I really want to get onto reading them haha.
Zlata’s Diary: A Child’s Life in Wartime Sarajevoby Zlata Filipovic
I read that this book is reminiscent of Anne Frank’s diary, but it is obviously about a different point in history in a different country. I love reading personal accounts of events and I’m looking forward to learning more about the Bosnian war because I don’t know much about it at this point.
Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff
I was in love with Egyptian history when I was growing up and this is a Pulitzer Prize winner. Need I say more?
Don’t forget to add me on GoodReads! What are you reading this month?
PS. Remember to link up with Monday Melodies! A new link up is every Monday :]
