What I Believe by Bertrand Russell

What I Believe by Bertrand Russell

I’ve read about Russell in 50 Philosophy Classics by Tom Butler-Bowdon. As I saw this book mentioned in another place, I’ve decided to read What I Believe by Bertrand Russell. This edition has, in addition to What I Believe, two essays, Why I Took to […]

Courtiers The Secret History of the Georgian Court by Lucy Worsley

Courtiers The Secret History of the Georgian Court by Lucy Worsley

I think everybody knows Lucy Worsley, at least everybody from the UK that has an interest in history. After watching many TV shows, I’ve decided to start reading her books. The first one I’ve picked from the library is Courtiers. The Secret History of the […]

Jane Boleyn by Julia Fox

Jane Boleyn by Julia Fox

Jane Boleyn by Julia Fox, with the subtitle The True Story of the Infamous Lady Rochford, is the first book written by Julia. I’ve recently read her second book called Sister Queens by Julia Fox. That was for me an interesting book, with lots of […]

The Great Fire of London by Samuel Pepys

The Great Fire of London by Samuel Pepys

If you don’t like reading personal diaries, then The Great Fire of London by Samuel Pepys is not the book for you. But, if you do, then is a fascinating recount of an important event in London’s history. I was intrigued by the Great Fire […]

The Blazing World and Other Writings by Margaret Cavendish

The Blazing World and Other Writings by Margaret Cavendish

Today is International Women’s Day and, to mark this occasion, I’ve decided to review The Blazing World and Other Writings by Margaret Cavendish. She is a fascinating, intelligent woman, highly educated. Lady Margaret published under her own name, something quite unusual for an upper class […]

Kings and Queens by Neil Grant

Kings and Queens by Neil Grant

I’ve had this book, Kings and Queens by Neil Grant, in my wish list and my husband bought it for me as a Christmas gift, along with a few other books. Initially I thought I’m going to keep this illustrated guide as a reference book. […]

Exodus: immigration and multiculturalism in the 21st century by Paul Collier

Exodus: immigration and multiculturalism in the 21st century by Paul Collier is a book that was on my to-read list for 6 months. I had high expectations from the book, as I was very impressed with the way he teaches. The book didn’t disappoint at […]

Brain Games for Dogs by Claire Arrowsmith

Brain Games for Dogs by Claire Arrowsmith

The main reason I gave it 2 stars is because the name of the book says Brain Games for Dogs. If the book would have had the name Brain Games for Puppies or for beginners, it would have been a 4-5 stars, without any doubt. […]

The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins

The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins

I’ve read the 30th anniversary edition of The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins, one of the many editions of the book. It’s written in such a lovely way, clear, for laypersons, that can appeal to almost everybody. If you read it, is obvious why it […]

50 Philosophy Classics by Tom Butler-Bowdon

50 Philosophy Classics by Tom Butler-Bowdon

Besides the allegory of the cave, my knowledge of philosophy wasn’t great before reading this book. 50 Philosophy Classics by Tom Butler-Bowdon is one of currently 7 books written in the 50 classics series. I liked to read it as a reference book, a very […]

How To: Get Your Website Noticed by Filip Matous

How To: Get Your Website Noticed by Filip Matous

I had no intention of reading How To: Get Your Website Noticed by Filip Matous a few days ago. I was already reading 3 books, all very interesting. My husband was busy with a project, so I’ve started to go through it, just to see […]

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella was a book I wanted to read, but didn’t think I would be able to do so soon. I didn’t even take a picture of it for my “currently reading” update. A few days ago I went […]

Michael of Romania by Ivor Porter

Michael of Romania by Ivor Porter

Michael of Romania by Ivor Porter is a great book. Full title: Michael of Romania The King and The Country by Ivor Porter. I’ve decided to read it after King Michael passed away last December and I found this book at the central library. I […]

History by Peter Claus and John Marriott

History by Peter Claus and John Marriott

The full name of the book History by Peter Claus and John Marriott is History – An introduction to theory, method and practice. Sounds a bit boring, at least according to my husband. I have to admit I wasn’t sure it will be fun, as […]

Wonders of the Solar System and the Universe by Brian Cox

Wonders of the Solar System and the Universe by Brian Cox

I bought the book Wonders of the Solar System and the Universe by Brian Cox and Andrew Cohen for my husband. He is interested in astronomy and physics. He was telling me things he was reading in the book, so I wanted to know more. […]

Philippa Gregory

Philippa Gregory

A couple of years ago I’ve discovered Philippa Gregory. I enjoyed the first book I’ve read written by her, so I’ve continued reading. Now I can say I’ve finished two series by her: The Cousins’ War and The Tudor Court. I though it would be […]
