Becoming by Michelle Obama

Becoming by Michelle Obama is a book everybody seems to talk about. I didn’t like at all the picture on the front cover. She seems more like a pop star than the former First Lady. Regardless, I was curious and so I reserved it at […]

A Crime in the Family by Sacha Batthyany

A Crime in the Family by Sacha Batthyany

A Crime in the Family by Sacha Batthyany is a fascinating book. I would recommend it because it shows the horrors of both communism and Nazis. Only proves how dangerous and deadly both far-left and far-right can be, and how inhumane people were treated. I […]
