Reading is one of my favorite relaxing activities, and with summertime here I thought I'd share what's currently on deck.
Currently I'm reading "All the Queen's Men the World of Elizabeth I" by Peter Brimacombe. The Tudor period is my favorite and Q.E. I tops my list of most admired (I even named my first car after her.) The non-fiction work covers the important men who served, and were part of the Queen's council. Did you know that famed writer Christopher Marlowe was employed as a spy for the Queen? I know it's a little nerdy, and not a traditional summer read, but sometimes you need something to stimulate and activate the brain, and this is just the type of book to do that for me.
Next on my list is "Blonde Roots" which asks the question: what if history were reversed and white people were enslaved by blacks? It sounds like such an intriguing read and I can't wait to get started. You can read a review here.
Finally, "The Lost Symbol" by famed writer Dan Brown (author of awesome books "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels and Demons." I know nothing about the plot of this book, but I LOVED the other two books, so I can't imagine this won't be an exciting read.
So there you have it, the books I'll be reading over the next few month(s). What's on your list this summer?
