William Wallace started out as a humble knight, but he died a war hero. He gave up everything in his fight for Scottish freedom, including his life. When captured, Wallace was hung, drawn, and quartered by the English king for crimes against the crown. Though he was memorialized in the 1995 film Braveheart, this book tells how much of what we associate with Wallace is more legend than fact. Still, the spirit of the great Scotsman lives on in the hearts and minds of his compatriots today.

Historians consider the Haitian Revolution the most successful slave revolt in all of history. Though many fought in the rebellion, one man ensured their victory: Toussaint Louverture. With his political savvy and leadership skills, this former slave helped the inhabitants of what was then called Saint Domingue to challenge their French oppressors.

You was a great book by Caroline Kepnes. This is the first book in the You series. Caroline has an amazing way of writing characters that you will root for even when they are doing the wrong things. Joe Goldberg is a bookstore worker who has fallen for the aspiring writer Guinevere Beck. He starts obsessively taken control of Beck's life. Joe will do anything for Beck even if that means murder. I absolutely loved reading Joe and Beck's story and can't wait to read more in this series.
