**What I’m Reading is a new series in which I get to share what book I’m currently shoving my face into.
I’ve been reading this one for a while, because it is a colossal of a read, but my current reading is Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. It’s an amazing book that is an all encompassing look at Hamilton’s life. It’s taken me awhile to chew through it but I’m nearing the end, which is good but terrible at the same time because (spoiler alert if you don’t know American early history) he dies.
I’m not going post much in terms of my thoughts on the book yet, I’m reserving that until after I finish and at which point I can let loose all these pent up thoughts. But I will say it’s a really good read and I encourage you to pick it up. Hamilton’s life is very inspiring at times while also being a cautionary tale about working too much and/or having too much pride.
Well, I’m going to stop writing and get back to reading.

P.S. And yes, I am reading this because of the musical Hamilton, I’m just very far behind in my reading list (#alwayslatetotheparty).
