it‘s great for a girl in her age to write such a diary.

Wonderful but made me truly sick to my stomach. Reading her clear, funny, optimistic writing (hard to believe a young teen could write this well) knowing what was going to happen was horrifying. I wish I hadn‘t read the afterword on the train so I could have cried properly.

I‘m glad I read t even though it was hard. It reminded me of everything I shouldn‘t take for granted and how hard we owe it to people like Anne to work for a fairer world.

Home from Paris, family lunch done, bath taken and now quiet time. I‘m finally reading Anne Frank which I should have read years ago. I wanted to read it in the most respectful, thoughtful way I could rather than just race through it, so I‘ve got a whole evening and plenty of time to think.

She‘s such a warm, humorous, humane writer. She puts a lot of things in perspective for me, and I‘m appreciating how lucky I am to live my life

Naj One of my all time favorites. Really hope you love this one. 9mo
Ms_T The thing that stuck me most about this book was the maturity from such a young writer. Loved it ❤️ 9mo
Cinfhen I need to reread this one! I think I might try 9mo

This was exceptional. I should have read it a long time ago. 💖📚 I'm planning to go to Amsterdam soon and I hope to get a chance to visit the house where they managed to stay hidden for so long.

#backpackeurope travelogue *fictional*
Country 45: The Netherlands - I ate some stroopwaffel as I toured Amsterdam (canal tours, and a visit to the Secret Annex to pay my respects). I also kept my eyes peeled for windmills and tulips!
Rereading this book for the first time as an adult and it breaks my heart. Probably one of the most important books ever. Everyone should read it...and recognize how horrific it is she never got to grow up. 5/5

Good historical reference. A bit dry to read through in it's entirety. Interesting that it came from a teenage girl (age 13 - 15). I think this is one that everyone should read at least once.

Today‘s book haul are WWII memoirs/true stories. Have you read either of these? I‘m eager to read them both. Do you have any more WWII memoirs/true stories to recommend? I want to grow my collection before my new modules start in October. #history #holocaust #shoah #WWII #nonfiction #booklover #bookblogger #bibliophile #bookish

thereadingowlvina I enjoyed The Boy On The Wooden Box! I'd recommend: Surviving Hitler (I just finished that this morning), Born Survivors, The Tattoist of Auschwitz & Johanna Krausse: Twice Persecuted. There are so many more (including fiction) I've read but these are just some I think that are really good 😁 2y
Sophoclessweetheart @Cinfhen I‘ve just brought Night. It‘s on its way! Thank you so much! X 2y
Sophoclessweetheart @thereadingowlvina Oh! I think I have some of those on my list already. I‘ll check them. Thank you! X 2y
Cinfhen These are not necessarily survivor‘s stories but both were very interesting reads 2y
Sophoclessweetheart @Cinfhen Thank you Cindy. I‘ll look them all up. I‘ve read a bit about Irena and the Warsaw children so that‘s a definite one 😍 2y
bnp The title I was thinking of is Underground in Berlin by Marie Jaliwicz Simon. An underground life by Gad Becj also looks interesting. 2y
Sophoclessweetheart @bnp Ah! Thank you! I‘ll look it up now x 2y
bnp Grrr keyboard! Jaliwicz. Gad Beck. 2y
Sophoclessweetheart @bnp Ahh! Yes! That‘s called Gone to Ground in the U.K. I‘ll have to get a copy x 2y

Finished my second book on the #readharderchallenge. #publishedposthumously

I was enthralled by this book. Listened to the audiobook and the reader is top notch. Highly highly recommended it. Anne writes about her life as a 13 year old then about life in hiding. Not very interesting situations but Anne‘s writing and insights make them worth reading about. Anne would‘ve gone on to do great things. 💔

blurb
hike.read.repeat

I‘m 30 minuets or so into the audiobook and simply Anne describing her everyday life as a 13 year old is absolutely enthralling. Reading for #publishedposthumously on the #readharderchallenge.

I‘m also reading another book that‘s in journal format and I think I‘m going to seek out more journal books because I enjoy the style.

It‘s impossible to give this book anything other than a pick. At twelve years old, Anne Frank wrote her diary with maturity, detail and incredible humour. Her emotions ranging from adventure, fear, horror and hope are conveyed in a way far outreaching her years. I found the afterword particularly hard to read. A sombre yet compelling book.

With three months to spare, I finished my goal of 52 books this year with The Diary of a Young Girl! I‘m not stopping at 52 but I‘m pretty proud of myself after only reading 15 books last year! Getting back into reading was the best choice I made this year. #goodreads #bookchallenge

LeahBergen @kspenmoll Check on Abebooks.com - they had some used copies that were not much more than a regular new hardcover, I believe. I like Ardis Books in the UK for used Folio editions (you can trust their descriptions of condition). They sell through Abe but it's cheaper if you order directly through them. www.ardis.co.uk It is truly a lovely edition - I had to have it! 2y

How can anyone dislike this diary? Anne Frank is truly an inspiration, a role model, a great storyteller, and a funny little girl. Sadly, she was taken from this world far too soon. This riveting story about one of the most famous families during WWII is worth every page.

I read this in the 8th grade and could not believe that we didn't make it in time to save Anne. I read it again hoping for a different outcome because child me couldn't understand how a child who had faith in humanity could maintain it and yet still die. Adult me is appalled that we have yet to learn from history. I'm taking a brief social media break this weekend to regroup and find a way forward. Love to all Littens, no matter where you may be.

Cinfhen Beautiful review and so well said 3y
BookishMarginalia It makes me sick to remember that Anne Frank and her family were denied asylum by the US. 3y
Notafraidofwords @BookishMarginalia agree, every time I try to make a connection between the rise of the nazis and now, I get a side eye. But isn't the point of learning history for this sole purpose. 3y

Zelma @Yournewfriendsams it's the only book from my childhood I saved. I am not sentimental about material things at all, so it's odd that I've held onto it. But I can remember buying it in the store, which shelf it was on, and reading it so many time the pages are now loose. I'll keep it until it disintegrates. 🙂 3y
