What Grace Is Reading

Need some nonfiction books to add to your to read pile? Grace has some great books for you.

If you are new around here, you might be wondering who Grace is. Grace is part of the team that runs From Our Bookshelf. By part of the team, I really mean half the team because it is pretty much Grace and I running From Our Bookshelf. Grace runs our Instagram account and does all kinds of book reviews here on our site.

Grace is a college student who loves reading and writing. College has slowed her reading down some, but she still reads over a hundred books a year. She loves history. She also loves learning odd and lesser known facts about movies, books, and life in general.

Grace shares a lot of what she is reading on Instagram, but I thought it would be fun to also highlight here some of her recent reads. If you would like a look into our everyday reading life, be sure to follow us on Instagram. 

Now for what Grace has been reading!


Devotion by Adam Makos –This was a very interesting story. It is about a famous aviator duo during the Korea War. I liked Devotion. I have read very little about the Korean War, but now I want to read more. You can read my full review here. Have you read it?

Hamilton Book

Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow- I finished up the book Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. I have actually been reading this book for a long time, but I have been wanting to lend it to a friend, and I didn’t want to let them borrow it until I finished it. So I finally finished the over 700 page book. I enjoyed it in the end. There was a lot of information. But it was a little slow because there were so many facts. ~G

We'll Always Have Casablanca

We’ll Always Have Casablanca: The Life, Legend, and Afterlife of Hollywood’s Most Beloved Movie by Noah Isenberg-A weekend read. If you love the movie Casablanca this is a great read. Full review coming soon.


Spearhead by Adam Makos-I really enjoy Adam Makos books and am very excited to read Spearhead. I will share my thoughts when I finish reading it. Has anyone else read it yet?

Hellhound on His Trail

Hellhound on His Trail: The Stalking of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the International Hunt for His Assassin by Hampton Sides-I really enjoyed this one. Full review coming soon.

Dutch Girl

Dutch Girl: Audrey Hepburn and World War II by Robert Matzen-Dutch Girl was not going to be my next read. But when I got it in the mail this week, I was so excited that I decided to move it to the top of my tbr pile.

The Power of Words and the Wonder of God

The Power of Words and Wonder of God by John Piper– A friend was getting rid of a stack of books and this one looked interesting so I took it to read. It was good for my Sunday reading.

    • The ones we have read have all been fairly clean. Nothing graphic at all that we can remember. There are general stories of people dating, marriage, having kids, etc. but they don’t go into a lot of details at all. The books mainly stick to the war stories, etc. I hope that helps answer your question.
