Happy 4th of July everyone! This year has been challenging for all of us but take a break and celebrate. Or, relax with a good book.
I was wondering what books I should add to my TBR (to be read) pile when I realized a big national holiday was right around the corner. And now it’s here! Because of my wondering, I went on a hunt to find the best patriotic books.
I know some of you are not from the United States, so these books may not seem appealing (except for the last one). But, if you want to know more about the United States then these will be great books for you too!
Because today is the 4th of July and because I already have a really long list (if you like list, I also compiled a list of dad jokes that really made me laugh, check it out here) of books to read, I am only sharing with you what I think will be the best patriotic books for adults. That means only 4 books for the 4th of July (try saying that 5 times fast). So, let’s get started!
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption
Unbroken is the first in my list of the best patriotic books. It is a story set in WWII that follows the story of an Army Air Force bomber who crashed into the ocean. It is up to him to survive the dangers of the ocean, starvation, and more. I love WWII stories and this is one that I have never read before.
Actually, I love any story that involves war because they always have a lot of action, emotion, and make me feel patriotic. I don’t know why but they do, I can’t help it. Do you ever feel this way?
It’s a bestseller and is rated a 4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon with over 29,000 reviews. I can’t help but think this book will be a good one, but I still want to find out for myself. You should too!
The Hunt For Red October
The Red October is a nuclear submarine that the Americans want and the Russians want it back. It is described as a game of hide and seek and a race to see who can get it first.
This bestselling novel was set in the cold war. I like it because most war books/movies I have seen tend to be about WWII (like the book I mentioned first). I like seeing new perspectives and learning along the way, so I can’t wait to pick this book up and read it.
This book was written by Tom Clancy. I believe all of his books have been bestsellers. Imagine being able to say that! I think any of his books would be a great addition to this list, but this book seems the most interesting to me at the moment.
Anyone who enjoys thrillers will probably love this book. And, if you want to see it rather than read it, there is a movie version too. Although, I’ll probably read it before I watch the movie.
Now We Are Enemies
Who doesn’t about the Battle of Bunker Hill? Well, even if you don’t know much about it, you have probably heard about it. I am curious about this book because it’s the first book written about the battle. Isn’t that neat?
The author of this book is Thomas Fleming. He has published 50 books! That’s insane to me. From what I can see, he enjoys history. So, if you are a history buff, he might be an author worth checking out.
Because it is the first, it is recognized the most complete (and probably most accurate) account of what happened. It has great reviews and I have even heard it be called an American classic. What better way to celebrate the fourth of July than with a book like this?
The Year of The Witching
Okay, so this book isn’t very patriotic. However, it is coming out this month, as in July. I couldn’t help but throw this one into the list.
This book is written by Alexis Henderson (hey, that’s my first name!). It is her first book so hopefully it’s a good one! I’m rooting for her because it just sounds so darn interesting!
The cover looks so dark, sinister, and mysterious and the story could speak to a lot of people. The Year of the Witching is about a woman born into a family of disgrace. She tries hard to conform and be accepted but soon the discovery of dark powers and witches will demand a change that starts with her.
Doesn’t that sound like a great read? To me it absolutely does and I can’t wait to get it and read it.
Let’s Talk About It!
These four books are perfect for the 4th of July. Whether you read the books or not, I really hope you guys enjoy the holiday. If you don’t celebrate, well then I hope your day is going well!
