Flying back home today. Hope to get this finished by the time I get home.
I look so angry in this photo. 😂 But I think my facial expression properly conveys how I feel about my least favorite reads. I definitely read some fantastic books in 2019 and did relatively well DNFing books that I wasn‘t enjoying. But there were eight that I saw all the way through that I ended up giving low ratings to. Let me tell you all about them! https://youtu.be/tJ1BgSR79VI

I‘m late to this book but was completely immersed in the lives of sisters, Vianne and Isabelle, and how they negotiated 1940s France. I was equally invested in the lives of each sisters, and oh, that ending!
It was good. There were some great examples of figurative language, some great scenes, but also some pieces that used too much simile or abuse that went on too long...ending was neat though, and I appreciated the framing structure.
Picture is of cloudy #Portland day, to remind me of the terrible #winters described in the #Loire Valley during #WWII
This book was amazingly well written. It was such a detailed depiction of WWII, that it often brought me to tears. It also gave me several different grave views of the war that I hadn't previously known or thought of.
I would recommend this to anyone interested in historic fiction, specifically WWII/The Holocaust. This was SUCH a fantastic book!
❄❄ Happy Reading! ❄❄
1) Definitely!! I never thought I would read historical fiction!
2) there are so many!! I don‘t have a current, but 3 of my favorites are Vianne, Isabelle, and Evelyn Hugo 💚
My favorite book and one of my favorite actresses!! I have always loved Dakota Fanning!!! Can‘t wait!!!
Why did I take so long to read this? Because I knew it would be heart breaking and make me cry, and it did. A beautiful epic story of two women who were each heroes of WW2 in their own way. I highly recommend! I now want to read more true stories of these women. Excellent audiobook production as well. #recommendsday
What are your favorite #KristinHannah books?
So far I‘ve read: The Nightingale, The Great Alone, Firefly Lane, Winter Garden, and Distant Shores (that was the only one I didn‘t care for). I‘m thinking Night Road should be next?
captivating, raw and emotional book about two sisters during World War II. The book follows Vianne, the older sister, married with child, and the younger rebellious sister, Isabelle. Although sisters they could not be more opposite, and living worlds apart. This book is a tough emotional read about what life was really like for French civilians. Would highly recommend this book to those who love historical fiction.
This is what I was doing the second I finished #reading The Nightingale this afternoon. I mean, I was listening to the #audiobook from #hoopla - don‘t worry. This was a difficult book for me. World War ll fiction is something I need to read especially about of women and mothers - #historicalfiction shows me history through the eyes (and hearts) of the people who lived it. #bookclub
This book blew me away. There aren‘t many books that brought tears to my eyes. It demands us to remember the evils the people of Europe endured during WW2. We must never forget them and what they went through. There is still evil in this world but let‘s pray it never comes to this again.
Definitely lives up to the hype! I couldn‘t stop reading this book and I had tears streaming down my face by the end. I‘ve read a lot of fiction set during the Holocaust, but I felt like this one captured the fear and horror of what was happening better than anything I‘ve read before. I also learned a lot about the women‘s resistance movement in France during World War II. Fantastic book!
I would be stupid not to start with this one!

🎧 I enjoyed this book in fact I highly recommend it! Narrator was a good choice. It was a pretty long book but it was definitely worth my time and yours, gripping from the first chapter. Basically it‘s the story of two sisters living in France during the German occupation in WWII and the things they did to survive & help others. You may cry as it ends. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4
Starting this one tonight. My second Kristin Hannah book, and I hope it can live up to Winter Garden. 💙

I totally missed this on Wednesday!!!!! Sorry!! @Eggs
I really enjoyed this historical fiction, more than I would have expected...
I liked the development of the different characters, the writing style, and the plot. I'm glad my book club chose this book, otherwise I doubt I would have picked it for myself.
What book did a book club choose that you ended up liking, and that you wouldn't have picked on your own?
