This month, the GeekMoms have tackled both fiction and non-fiction. From vampires and classic Stephen King to historical fiction and novels featuring strong female characters, the selection this month is quite varied!

The Turncoat: Renegades of the Revolution

The Turncoat2

With the Revolutionary War as a backdrop, The Turncoat takes readers from the barracks of the Continental Army to a hearthside with Alexander Hamilton and beyond as Kate fights for her own life and that of the man she loves.

HungryPlanet2

There are two fabulous books that have (seriously) traveled 7,500 miles with my family over the years as we’ve moved from place to place, simply because they must be on our bookshelves. Material World: A Global Family Portrait and Hungry Planet: What the World Eats are wonderful, thought-provoking, educational, and interesting.
