    The Magnificent Nine sounds like a great read.My Top Ten Tuesday post.

    I'll look forward to your review of the Goldstein book. It'll be interesting to see how some have *solved* Global Warming! Some of the most recent books on the subject are quite apocalyptic!

    There are Firefly books? How did I not know that? That sounds great.

    The cover of Street Smart is so cool. I hope you enjoy all of these. Tina @ As Told By Tina

    Well, we'll see…

  7. Stephen says:

    Yep! Since Oct 2017, anyway. This is the second in the series. The author does a good job capturing the character's voices.

  8. Stephen says:

    Yes, I'm enjoying it now. 🙂

  9. Stephen says:

    I know it includes in part nuclear energy, which is one of the reasons I went for the book.

  10. Stephen says:

    Thank you! Enjoy yours, too, especially that Aladdin book. 🙂

    I haven't heard of any of these, but I hope you love them when you get to them.Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

    An interesting group of books. I think that I would like to read them all. To Rule the Waves sounds particularly good. I plan to start reading some books about the British Empire soon and this looks like it would fit in well.

  13. Stephen says:

    In a week or so I'll post a few more books of interest in that category!

  14. Marian H says:

    As always, an interesting and well-rounded list! I'll be eagerly awaiting your review of To Rules the Waves.
