In the midst of the craziness that was the 2013 Christmas season- finals, working full-time hours at my part-time job, spending time with friends and family- I made a goal for myself to read 5 books. Out of the five books that I read over the past few weeks (listed below), one stood out: Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America by Glenn Beck. You see, this isn’t your typical historical book that merely focuses on names and dates. Beck understands that history is much more than that- it’s the story of how we got from nothing to everything.
Miracles and Massacres uses each chapter to tell the true story about different historical events you have probably heard of, but don’t really know about.
- The South’s own Paul Revere
- An American hero inspired by… Al Capone?
- The real Thomas Edison
- Was Tokyo Rose really a traitor?
- The missing 9/11 terrorist
- And more!
Every story told within this book gives the reader new insight into several of the most well-known historical events from America’s past. If you enjoy a good story, learning new facts, and desire the truth, you’ll love Beck’s latest, Miracles and Massacres, which leaves you with a craving for more.
My Christmas Reading List:
- Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America, Glenn Beck 9/10
- The Book Thief, Markus Zusak 7/10
- The Light Between Oceans, M.L. Stedman 4/10
- When Character Was King: A Story of Ronald Reagan, Peggy Noonan 9/10
- If Democrats Had Any Brains, They’d Be Republicans, Ann Coulter 8/10
