The Broke and the Bookish is a back to school freebie. While school has been quite some time ago I do still like to learn about new topics so here are some nonfiction reading that is on my Back to School TBR list.
2. The Mad Sculptor: The Maniac, the Model, and the Murder that Shook the Nation by Harold Schechter - I love a good murder mystery in fiction so this true murder mystery that takes place in Manhattan in the 1930s sounds like my kind of book!
3. Village of Secrets: Defying the Nazis in Vichy France by Caroline Moorehead - Back years and years ago I read a book about how the famous vineyards and wineries hid their supplies from the Nazis and was absolutely fascinated by the story. While this one isn't about wine it sounds like another winner.
4. The Art of the English Murder: From Jack the Ripper and Sherlock Holmes to Agatha Christie and Alfred Hitchcock by Lucy Worsley - The subtitle has my favorite author, an unsolved mystery I'm fascinated with, one of my favorite directors, and another favorite fictional character. How can I resist the book?
6. As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes - This is one of my favorite movies of all time and I've been dying to read this one but have been waiting to get it on audio.
7. Q's Legacy: A Delightful Account of a Lifelong Love Affair with Books by Helene Hanff - 84, Charing Cross Road, is one of my favorite books of all time yet somehow I've yet to read this one.
8. Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson - I've always been fascinated by the Lusitania and Larson is an author I've been wanting to read for awhile.
9. The Rescue Artist: A True Story of Art, Thieves, and the Hunt for a Missing Masterpiece by Edward Dolnick - I binged Raiders of the Lost Art on Netflix not that long ago and became mildly obsessed with art theft and the people who get the art back.
10. First Women: The Grace and Power of America's Modern First Ladies by Kate Andersen Brower - The Residence about the White House staff was one of my favorite reads of 2015 yet somehow I've yet to read this book about the First Ladies.
