Berls Reviews On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder

Berls Reviews On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder

My top thoughts: I read this book over an extended period, in little snippets as part of my Miracle Morning routine. I really enjoyed the way Snyder was able to provide concrete examples in just the last century of pitfalls to democracy and stable society that we are currently observing happening again.

I snorted out loud! The Duchess Deal #audioreview

OMG The Duchess Deal was so much fun! I laughed and snorted out loud, it was so funny! Especially the wedding night – 100% in the dark! And the pet names for the Duke. OMG, hilarious fun! I loved the characters so much, they were extremely likable, especially the very ornery Duke. The way he […]
