School has been back in session since the last week in July here in middle Georgia. So, so glad that I don’t have any more kids in school! Oh wait, I do! My youngest son started his first year of Law School two weeks ago. My other two children have both completed Master’s degrees and on their way to outstanding careers. Yeah, I’m a bit proud!
When I read this week’s theme, I just couldn’t get the classic song Don’t Know Much out of my head. Here’s my list in tribute to that Sam Cooke classic.
The Don’t Know Much, Back To School Top 14
Don’t know much about . . .
History. I really liked European history in school. American history, not so much. So here are a few books that feature those things I didn’t pay attention to in class.
Washington’s Lady by Nancy Moser (pre and post-Revolutionary War)
Burning Sky by Lori Benton (post-Revolutionary War)
The Sentinels of Andersonville by Tracy Groot (Civil War)
Though Waters Roar by Lynn Austin (Civil War, Women’s Suffrage, Prohibition)
Biology. When I think of biology, I think of the birds and bees. When I think of the birds and bees, I think great romances. Here are some that fit that title.
Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Beth K. Vogt
The Dandelion Field by Kathryn Springer
The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck
Science Books. Science? Yick! I glazed over in my HS Chemistry class and I didn’t even attempt Physics. Here are four novels that involve science but didn’t make me glaze over!
Bad Ground by Dale Cramer (mining)
Critical Reaction by Todd M. Johnson (nuclear energy)
Maximal Reserve by Sam Batterman (petroleum exploration)
Undetected by Dee Henderson (sonar)
The French I Took. This may be because I took Spanish. LOL! The only French word I can say with confidence is oui! These books set in France deserve a definite oui, oui!
My Brother’s Crown by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould (17th century)
Flame of Resistance by Tracy Groot (WWII)
Two Crosses by Elizabeth Musser (Algerian Civil War)
