Hello all! Today, I’m here to tell you all about the ten books that I want to read in 2019. None of them are being published in 2019. They’re all books that I own and have had on my radar to read for a while.
A month ago, I finally read a book about Queen Victoria that I liked. And, so, I’ve decided that I really want to read this book about her since I found the dynamics between her and her husband absolutely fascinating. I’ve owned it for a few years, so it really needs to get read.
Last year, I put Alison Weir’s book on Elizabeth I on my Top Ten list, but I never got to it and my opinion of Weir has deteriorated greatly. Therefore, I’m going to read Somerset’s book on her!
Yes. The Bible. I read the Quran during Ramadan this year and enjoyed it, so I think that this year I’m going to, finally, read the Bible. I’ve meant to for a long time. I have a copy that I really enjoyed flipping through. So, here goes.
I’ve always felt a very strong pull towards Hinduism, which was why I snatched this book up from a used bookstore when I saw it. I’ve taken a class where we covered Indian history, but it was so dry and boring that I just need to read this book.
The wonderful Melanie is doing a #CatchUpOnClassics in 2019 and one of the books is this! While I might not be able to read it during that month — it’ll be the end of my third semester of grad school and the requirements in your second year are insane — I definitely intend to read it in 2019.
This book has been on my radar for a very long time. I love Arthurian legends and I finally found a copy that I can call my own, so it’s definitely a must read for me.
As you all know, I love history. I specifically love Tudor history, but I really want to know more about the Yorkish rules. I’ve read Weir’s book on this same topic, but I really want to read another person’s thoughts and conclusions.
Surprisingly, I don’t know too much about Margaret and Mary. I’ve read about them, sure, but I don’t recall much. So, I think it’s time to read the book that’s been on my shelf for a while.
Same principle, really. I want to know more about Henry Fitzroy. I know of him, but a book completely about him? Never read anything like it. And this book has been staring at me for a while.
I’ve read his second book in this series, which is about the Tudors, but I want to read the whole series eventually. I own all the books that have been published, too, so I might as well start with this one.
