Books to read for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic

This week marks the 100th anniversary of the ill-fated maiden voyage of the Titanic. The ship left England on April 10, 1912, and sank five days later. There have been many TV specials, an anniversary cruise retracing the route the Titanic would have sailed had it completed its voyage to New York (and I am super jealous of everyone on it!), and of course, lots and lots of new Titanic-related books. I have been fascinated by the story of the Titanic since I was a child (even before the popular movie was released), so I decided to do a post on Titanic-related books I've read to mark the anniversary.

Many of these books I've reviewed on my blog, and so the titles link to my reviews. A few of the books I read many years ago and so never reviewed on my blog, those links go to Goodreads. And if you have any favorite Titanic-related books, I'd love to hear about them!

Titanic books I've reviewed on my blog:

Dear America: Voyage on the Great Titanic by Ellen Emerson White
No Moon by Irene N. Watts
Titanic, Book One: Unsinkable by Gordon Korman

Since you like to read, I wondered if you might be interested in learning more about cryptic crosswords. If so, this is a link to a post I did recently on cryptic crossword clues that involve anagrams. Cryptic Crossword Clues - Anagrams
