As I mentioned yesterday, 2014 was my year of reading England books. So, here are 5 of my favorites.
5. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson, a fun way to get a review of the Jack the Ripper story while experiencing modern London with a teenager.
4. London by Edward Rutherfurd, proof that you can learn a lot of history while reading fiction.
3. Longitude by Dava Sobel, because, of course, you can learn history from nonfiction, too.
2. My Love Affair with England by Susan Allen Toth, a book that dependably reawakens my romantic attachment to England.
1. Doomsday Book by Connie Wills, the novel I read while in England so I will always and forever associate it with my trip.
I’m still reading books on England, so let me know if you have recommendations!
