From the President to the Princess

Book Blog

I finally finished The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey by Candice Millard and have to say I absolutely loved it. I would recommend it to anyone. It's one of those books where you realize that often fact is often more exciting and unbelievable than fiction. She takes the story straight from the journals of the traveler's and supplements the story with notes about the animals, plants, insects, and native inhabitants of the Amazon. What a truly amazing story.

On to my next book: The First Princess of Wales by Karen Harper.

As my last post mentions, I received this book in the mail from my sister and just in time too for my commute tomorrow morning :) I'm super excited because for a semester I lived in Wales while I was in undergraduate college and absolutely fell in love with the country. It looks like it is historical fiction with a little bit of treachery and a little bit of romance. I'll let you know what I think. :)
