3 Hidden Marvels of Medieval Fortresses"
1.Ingenious Plumbing Systems Beneath the grandeur of some old castles, there was a hidden secret - a clever plumbing system working behind the castle walls.

5 Surprising Coexistences: People Who Shared Their Eras
5. Joe Biden & Adolf Hitler Joe Biden and Adolf Hitler had a brief overlap in their lifetimes, although they were vastly different figures in history. Joe Biden, born in 1942, is the 46th President of the United States, with a long career in American politics. In contrast, Adolf Hitler, born in 1889, led Nazi Germany during the 1930s and 1940s, responsible for immense human suffering during World War II and the Holocaust. Joe Biden was born three years after Hitler's death, and their paths never crossed. Despite both being leaders, their lives were drastically distinct, with only a limited shared timeframe.

I wish more people knew about these 4 books from my English degree..
1. Why Don’t You Stop Talking This collection of short stories explores topics such as lesbian relationships, mental health, illness, phobias, and loneliness. This collection is characterized by a downbeat tone, but there are moments of humour scattered throughout it. My favourite story is the Kafka-esque ‘Shell’ where a woman is forced to grow a shell to survive- completing her transformation by turning into a tortoise. Overall, it is well worth the read and there are images in this collection that I still think about years later.
