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 stumbled on this one thanks (again) to Chuckles. I have been toying with this one for a while because I have so many memes and features that I participate in, there are hardly time for reviews it feels like. But I am hoping this will also help with my whole TBR situation, so I can find some treasures that I have forgotten about.
Neglected Book of the Week
Why did I add In Search of the Trojan War to my TBR?
Mainly because this is one myth that might actually be true. With the discovery of Troy in the late 1880s (though at first it was believed to be a hoax because Schliemann was a con man and super shady), this has piqued my interest since I first learned of it years ago. Last year the ancient Greek city of Tenea was discovered, which is the city supposedly built by the survivors of the Trojan War. Discoveries are constantly being made, and who knows what might be discovered next. I am eager to find out what is already known, to have a better idea of what might still be out there for us to find.
Have you read this book, or is it somewhere on your TBR? If you've read it, would you recommend it to others?
