I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul. ~ W.E. Henley

A Vixen's Reads: My Booklist


If anyone would pay attention to my book collection, it would be easy to conclude that I dig World War II genres.  I find that era fascinating, heart wrenching and exciting all at the same time.  My term paper back in high school, if I remember it right, was about the cruelties of that war.  Although I get horrified in reading holocaust tales, my interest and curiosity progresses exponentially.  I even got my self a hard copy of Hitler's Mein Kampf just to pick his brain.  

Not to make this post longer than it would be, I present my minuscule but fairly filling collection written in my ghastly handwriting!
