"Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind" by Yuval Noah Harari is a fascinating exploration of the history of our species, Homo sapiens, from the emergence of our species in Africa to the present day. The book covers a wide range of topics, including the Cognitive Revolution, the Agricultural Revolution, the development of empires and civilizations, the role of religion and ideology, the impact of technology and globalization, and the future of humanity.

Harari argues that the key to the success of Homo sapiens lies in our ability to create and believe in imagined realities, such as gods, nations, and money, which have enabled us to cooperate in large groups and build complex societies. He explores how these imagined realities have shaped human history and continue to influence our world today.

"Sapiens" is written in a clear and engaging style, making complex ideas and concepts accessible to a wide audience. Harari's insights into the nature of humanity and the forces that have shaped our world are thought-provoking and enlightening, inviting readers to consider their place in the broader sweep of history.

Sure, she was plain and dull, but she was the sort one could settle down with in a few years after the sowing of the wild oats was completed. . .if one could get past how plain and ordinary she was that is. In truth, Lady Lavinia Antrucha was nothing compared to her sister, Cassandra. She had neither beauty nor social notoriety. . .but at least she didn't leave a trail of broken hearts behind her. She's the one people go to when they're in trouble and don't know what to do, the one who is supposed to be the stronger of the two Antrucha girls, the one her parents expect will stay with them for the rest of their lives, because what man would want to marry plain, little Lavinia? The most sought after bachelor in all of Scotland, the life of any given party, that's what they named Laird Ethan Brodi. He was the toast of high society and the man every mother yearned to see on their doorstep, asking to see their fine daughter. He knew there was something more to life than petty women who couldn't see past his fine physique, and he intended to find it; that is, until his father decided he had spent enough time unmarried and forged an alliance with the rich Antruchas by promising him in marriage to the eldest daughter who would certainly match Ethan in good looks and fine tastes. As far as Ethan was concerned, Lady Cassandra Antrucha could take a long walk off a short pier, but his father's word was law, and so to England he must go to meet his future bride. Can he go through with a marriage when his heart yearns for another?#Wattys2016

Honey and the Bear (Discontinued)

There's way too many RusAme books, and not enough of any other ships. Let's get into what it's about, shall we?The ship used will be RusCan (Russia X Canada). I've hardly ever seen this ship used, and in general, I think it's quite adorable. They don't have bad blood unlike Russia and America (cough cough, Cold War) so it's a bit more realistic. Anywho, Russia is known to be cold, harsh, and unloving. He hardly even cares about his own siblings. He considers himself straight, and is highly homophobic. Until someone makes him second guess himself...Canada is sweet, caring, and loving of everyone, even those that other countries find unlovable. This adorable pansexual has never been in a relationship with anyone, actually. Until he meets a certain someone...
