Alyson Hale DELIVERS!
Rocked Senseless - Alyson Hale

Alyson Hale provides steam and a besties-to-lovers romance set to a crazy, wild ride that exists in the rockstar life. Logan was so easy to fall in love with that it makes you question why Madison didn't catch it from the start, but the ride of reaching romance and their HEA delivers laughs, smiles and more than enough heat for warming up your sheets! Five large, golden, beaming stars!

1968: The Year That Rocked the World by Mark Kurlansky
1968: The Year That Rocked the World - Mark Kurlansky

Date Published: January 11, 2005

Format: Ebook

Source: Own Copy

Date Read: April 14-21, 2019

 

Blurb:

Brings to teeming life the cultural and political history of the pivotal year of 1968, when television's influence on global events first became apparent, and spontaneous uprisings occurred simultaneously around the world.

To some, 1968 was the year of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Yet it was also the year of the Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy assassinations; the riots at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago; Prague Spring; the antiwar movement and the Tet Offensive; Black Power; the generation gap; avant-garde theater; the upsurge of the women's movement; and the beginning of the end for the Soviet Union.

In this monumental book, Mark Kurlansky brings to teeming life the cultural and political history of that pivotal year, when television's influence on global events first became apparent, and spontaneous uprisings occurred simultaneously around the world. Encompassing the diverse realms of youth and music, politics and war, economics and the media, 1968 shows how twelve volatile months transformed who we were as a people–and led us to where we are today.

Review:

 

Outstanding look at the world in 1968. There is no hippies or Summer of Love peace, love, and drugs; this is serious analysis of a world that is increasingly interconnected and influenced by one another. The most interesting part for me is how Kurlansky shows how the post World War II generation grew up and grew apart from previous generations, especially in Germany, France, Czechoslovakia, and Poland. Highly recommend.

I am a little over halfway up the Snakes and Ladders board, so hopefully I will be having my BL friends voting on my final book sometime this month.

Shadow - Bob Woodward

So far, I have read two books off the list: Last of the President's Men by Bob Woodward and Playing with Fire: The 1968 Election and the Transformation of American Politics by Lawrence O'Donnell. I got lucky and found in really good condition a copy of All the President's Men by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward in the free book swap area of my library. 

 

Next up is getting to 1968 by Mark Kurlansky and The Making of a President 1972 by Theodore White. This will set me up to reading about Watergate during the summer and giving me time to tackle Shadow from September to December.

 

____________________________________________________________________

 

Inspired by the podcasts Slow Burn (season one) from Slate and Bagman by Rachel Maddow, I decided to do a deep dive into the Nixon administration, specifically Watergate.  I already read the Nixon/Ford section of Clint Hill's Five Presidents just to get my feet wet. I may not get to all of these, but I hope to read enough to have a good grasp on what happened.

 

My Nixon Reading List:

 

1. 1968: The Year that Rocked the World by Mark Kurlansky

2. Playing with Fire: The 1968 Election and the Transformation of American Politics by Lawrence O'Donnell (Read March 2019)

3. The Making of a President 1972 by Theodore White

4. Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America by Rick Perlstein

5. All the President's Men by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward

6. Last of the President's Men by Bob Woodward (Read January 2019)

7. The Nixon Defense: What He Knew and When He Knew It by John Dean

8. Breach of Faith: The Fall of Nixon by Theodore White

9. Shadow: Five Presidents and the Legacy of Watergate  by Bob Woodward

10. The Nixon Tapes 1971-1972 by Douglas Brinkley and Luke Nichter
