Rust: The Longest War - Jonathan Waldman

Why ever read a biography of Rust? I also asked myself this question when I started reading it. But then I remembered I once read a book on Rain and wondered the same thing. However, both rust and rain are parts of life and their respective books were more interested than previously expected.

There were some genuinely interesting parts in this, some things I had previously never even considered. Like the restoration of the Statue of Liberty but more importantly the part on the canning industry. Made me look differently the next time I took a can.

Some parts were a bit long winded though, but I think more people than expected will find this interesting.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

TBR Thursday #6 - Part 2
A Calculated Life - Anne Charnock
Rust: The Longest War - Jonathan Waldman
The Iron Trial - Cassandra Clare,Holly Black
California - Edan Lepucki
The Palace Job - Patrick Weekes
The Downton Abbey Rules for Household Staff - Carnival Productions

Moonlight Reader started the TBR Thursday, and I think it's a good way to a) show what new books I've got and b) confront myself with my inability to lower my TBR. In fact, since I started recording it, it has risen significantly. I get the feeling I'm doing something wrong here...



Not all my new books fitted into one post, so here's part two. Double the fun!


A Calculated Life and California are both Dystopian novels that seemed really interesting. I'm always on the look out for more good Dystopian novels (also outside the YA genre).


Magisterium: The Iron Trial I had seen on my Dashboard quite some times. Also, I was curious to try something from Cassandra Clare as some of my friends really like her other series.


Rust is a non-fiction about, ehm, rust. It seemed quite interesting when I requested it and it might turn out to be a really nice book I think.


The Palace Job is YA Fantasy. I actually quite liked the colour, and I was looking to expand more into the genre, so I was glad I found this book.


Last but not least, and not officially a part of this list is Downton Abbey: Rules for Household Staff. I was so excited because I was approved for this particular book, as I'm a great fan of the series, that I already started reading it even though I can't publish my review for another month. I just wanted to let you know that so far I'm really enjoying myself with it, despite the quite long chapter on wine.
