It is time for another Backlist Book Picks list. Backlist Book Picks is our weekly feature where we share two backlist books that we loved.
New releases are great, but there are so many older books that often get forgotten about. We have over four hundred reviews on our site and we want to share some love to all those older books that we have read and love.
Today we are featuring a fiction and a nonfiction book. If you love history, especially U.S. history, I think you will enjoy both of these!
America’s First Daughter was an interesting historical fiction read that had me wanting to learn more about Thomas Jefferson’s daughter. I often wondered what was fact and what was fiction when I was reading it, but the story overall was well written. It was one of those books that I had trouble putting down to go to sleep because it was so interesting. I am not usually a big fan of historical fiction, but I enjoyed this one.
Grace and I both read Sister’s First right after it was released in 2017 and we both loved it. We both love memoirs and this was one that we knew would fascinate us. It only took Grace less than forty-eight hours to finish it and she enjoyed every part of it. It was very interesting to learn about the personal side of a presidency and how it effects the family. We liked all the stories that the Bush twins told mostly because they were funny and personal. No matter what your politics are this is a great look at what political families have to deal with and how they live.
