Books From The Backlog #63


Books from the Backlog, hosted by Carole's Random Life in Books, is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your shelf unread.

I am featuring books in the order that they were added to my Goodreads To-Read shelf, so sometimes there will be a couple weeks in a row of books on the same topic.

Neglected Book of the Week

Why did I add Six Tycoons to my TBR?

Because Gilded Age NYC is one of my loves and I can't get enough.

Have you read this book, or is it somewhere on your TBR? If you've read it, would you recommend it to others?

Happy Reading!


  1. I've read a little on these men in shorter pieces. Always fascinated by that time period in American history.

    1. I love this time period so much. The Gilded Age world is so fascinating, especially NYC and Philly. I have tons of recs if you ever want some!

  2. Cool cover; hadn't seen this book before. Sorry Henry Flagler didn't make the list -- his architecture in St. Augustine is absolutely divine, and I mean that literally. One of the rooms there is the most beautiful space I've ever been inside, and that's counting several cathedrals.

    1. I've only heard of him in passing. What books would you recommend?

  3. I haven't, but I believe a friend of mine did, and she enjoyed it a lot


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
