Hi! I am doing a project in school which requires me to compare two books which are remotely similar. I go to a Christian private school, and have grown up in a Presbyterian home.

I have chosen to compare 1 Samuel (along with commentaries), with 1 Maccabees (and its commentaries as a guide). I have not read any apocryphal texts before - Is there a recommended place I should start? I am relatively familiar with popular Christian writers and commentators such as Matthew Henry and John Piper. I'd prefer if the texts were not entire books, though anything is appreciated.
