So, I’ll be honest, some of these are more tenuously connected to this challenge than others, but each one is important. There are some really good ones and some really meh ones. There are some new releases and some older stuff. I’m trying to cover literally everything here, apparently. Enjoy!
I tried so very, very hard to make this quick, but 32 books do not make for a fast time, even though I’ve already reviewed many of these on the channel. Actually, I was amazed how few I’d even talked about! This has something for everyone who reads as weirdly as me: young adult, fantasy, romance, and nonfiction. You can also skip towards the end to get my top pick so far in each category. Enjoy!
Up until now, these have had a theme. Now it’s just anarchy. I’ve got a few more books I’ve read that aren’t my biographies of a specific president. Actually, these might even be more interesting. Enjoy!
In this supplemental episode of my American Presidents Reading Challenge, I focus on books I read that compare and contrast two or more presidents in the same book. These have become my favorites of late, and there are some really good ones in here!
It’s time for another supplemental episode of my American Presidents Reading Challenge! For this one, I’ve corralled all my books that talk about life at the White House behind the scenes, without the president or presidency as the focus. Enjoy!
Three-ish years ago, Michaela got me to read a true crime book (which I normally hate) and I was blown away by this title. Now, I’ve finally watched the long-awaited HBO docuseries based on the book and I can’t believe I was ALSO blown away!
OOH BOY has it been a time since I’ve done one of these reviews (3 years, actually), and this one was totally accidental. In this review, I talk about both the book “The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels” by Jon Meacham and also the HBO documentary that was made of it. I have *feelings.*
Back at it with an ACTUAL episode of the ACTUAL challenge! This one covers FDR to Richard Nixon minus … nobody? Wow. That’s actually impressive. Let’s go!
In which I go over my top five and bottom five reads of this year. Weirdly, each group contains two romance novels, two nonfiction books, and one young adult novel. That was not planned, I swear.
I read nine books on the Nixon presidency. 10 if you count the actual biography. I never thought the answer “can you read too many books on Nixon in a row?” would be a question I would ever ask myself, but here we are.
