My Reading Life says:

I read the Meacham bio of Jefferson as well. It was good but not great. I am on Chernow’s bio of Grant. It’s good but Highly detailed. It’s taking me a loooong time!

The Novel Sanctuary says:

Unmarriageable is on my want to read list and I NEED it

Nacho Therapist says:

Great books !

vol43 says:

Great video as always! I remember watching your video on David McCullough's John Adams, which I'm reading now and enjoying. Unmarriagable and Bitter Orange are both on my TBR.

JessicaReadsThings says:

Bitter Orange is on my list – sounds great. Lovely video as always!

Reads With Kesara says:

I enjoyed watching this video. I haven't read any of these books, but I'll definitely have to look them up.

Ronald Bessling says:

Bitter Orange sounds like an interesting book

K C says:

Bitter Orange was a top 10 of 2018 for me, very atmospheric plus unreliable narrator!

Allison says:

I really liked Unmarriageable as well! I think it’s probably the book I’ve most enjoyed reading this year so far. Bitter Orange sounds intriguing.

That's What She Read says:

Adding Unmarriageable to the TBR! I know what you mean about espionage books. I did a reading challenge where that was the only one I didn't do! I've hears so many things about Bitter Orange.

R.V. Chua says:

I also gave Unmarriageable 4 stars, I really enjoyed it. I think it would be a 5 star read if it did not stick too much to the P&P storyline, the characters were interesting enough to drive the story.

That's So Poe says:

When you get to Teddy Roosevelt, I highly recommend Edmund Morris' trilogy on him (beginning with The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt). They are enormous books (about 800 pages each), but that series is probably one of my favorites of all time across all genres. It's so well-written that instead of feeling well-researched, it feels like a novel with incredible world-building and character development. Truly worthwhile.

Also, if you're a fan of Pride and Prejudice and ever get the chance, Kate Hamill's stage version of Pride and Prejudice is absolutely hilarious and beautifully feminist.

Jo Reads says:

Swimming Lessons is a novel if you are interested in reading it. I liked it although I can see why some people might not like it.

Donna Nevins says:

Which book did you read for Adams? I have read some of the letters between Adams and Jefferson after neither was president and they did not hate each other so much. Interesting that they died on the same day.

Ingrid Fitz says:

I love this idea of reading them in chronological order! I think it must really help understanding history as it progressed. I’m going to look into this.

Nicole Sweeney says:

Do you have any plans to do any sort of check-in video on your presidential biography project? Like, idk, every 5 presidents or something? What I'm really saying with this question is that I would watch this content.

Jacqueline McMenamin says:

I currently listening to Bitter Orange on audible. It's one of the 48 books on the Booktuber Prize longlist run by Robert at Barter Hoards.
