Gatsby, descendant of wolves, thinks this is a great title. Of course, she‘s not the one reading about the horrors of the starvation and atrocities visited on women and children in East Prussia as WWII comes to a close. #schnauzersoflitsy

Melissa_J Looking good Gatsby! Ellie says hi 🐶🐾 1mo

Question: what can you do when a book isn‘t in the Goodreads database? I posted my review of the tagged book on LibraryThing and went to do the same on Goodreads, but it isn‘t listed. Any suggestions?

Crazeedi That's never happened to me, contact goodreads and ask them how to put in or if they can enter it? 2mo
vumblereads There‘s a way to manually add books or you can go to the forums and have one of the goodreads librarians add it for you 🧡 2mo
Aseleener I think I found it on there. Not sure if this link will work or not: Check out this book on Goodreads: In The Shadow of Wolves http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40676187-in-the-shadow-of-wolves 2mo

LibrarianRyan Figure out which littens are good reads librarians and ask them to add it. I think I can do that. 2mo
Aseleener I am a GR librarian, but that book is already on GR. See link I posted in comment above. 2mo
Lynnsoprano @Aseleener Thanks! I looked several times, don‘t know how I missed it. 2mo

This was a fast read because the book is short, the writing is excellent, and the story is dramatic and compelling. It is also a difficult book to read because of the subject matter. I knew nothing about the “wolf children” until I read this, and it‘s something that should be more widely known. The suffering the characters endure is heartbreaking, yet so eloquently described. So grateful I got this through #earlyreviewers 4⭐️

This prompted me to check a map and history sources. It is set in East Prussia and Lithuania in the immediate aftermath of WWII. East Prussia was overrun by the Soviets, and according to my sources, most of the German population was evacuated to Germany. This novel is about a German family still in East Prussia and struggling to remain alive. Not an easy subject, but compelling so far.

I have been very lucky with LibraryThing #earlyreviewer books. Another arrived today, and this looks interesting. It‘s translated from Lithuanian, and apparently was the book of the year in Lithuania when it was published in 2011. Looking forward to this.

Crazeedi You are lucky! I keep entering haven't won! I'm still trying!! 2mo
Lynnsoprano @crazeedi I‘m not sure why I‘ve been so lucky. This was the only book I requested last month, so I really didn‘t expect to get it. This month has so many in the list that I‘m interested in, but I bet I don‘t win any😄 2mo
Tamra There is no blurb, so I‘m anxious for your review! 2mo
Crazeedi @Lynnsoprano that's pretty cool that you chose 1 book and got it! I just requested for this month, I do it every month too. Good luck!! 2mo
