Time to switch gears...I‘ve heard a lot of good things about this one. I hope it holds up to the hype!
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. 💙

Tagging new Litten @Zoes_Human.
🐈 Tagged. I wanted to read this as soon as I saw it and I finally got it from the library. I even kept it for as many renews as I could. But I never got to it. 😖
🐈 Outlander series
🐈 🤭 1000 at minimum and growing. I spend way too much time looking at books
🐈 The Book of Help: A Memoir of Remedies, Megan Griswold. I really enjoyed it, 4.5⭐
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?
This book grabbed me from page one and I bawled at the end. I can‘t remember the last time I read such a beautiful story.
If you love historical fiction. If you love stories about the holocaust. Run to get this book.
I don‘t think I‘d have the strength of the people in this story, the will and the desire to live. These stories, to me, show the best sides of human beings who are faced with the worst sides of human beings.
So many great books this year that ive read! Where have these been all my life. I mean if this is how my year is going in books i cant wait to see whats next 💗 this book was AMAZING. Its just that simple. I loved the story of the Nightingale and it shows just how powerful a woman can truley be. She overcame so many obstacles and showed such bravery! Just beautiful. Must read thats for sure 💗
Lost. It makes it sound as if I misplaced my loved ones, perhaps I left them where they don‘t belong and then turned away, too confused to retrace my steps. They are not lost. Nor are they in a better place. They are gone. As I approach the end of my years, I know that grief, like regret, settles into our DNA and remains forever a part of us.
I love Historical Fiction and Nightingale is at its best. ! Besides being very informative, the relationships are strained but they tell their story beautifully. I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a well written story that will touch you deeply.
This book ended up being better than I expected. With that being said, I do not think it is as wonderful as everyone says. I am giving it a pick, but I struggle with that. I basically feel like this is a romance novel set against the backdrop of WWII. It did not feel realistic to me. For a beautiful WWII book, try All The Light We Cannot See. For WWII romance, try All But My Life.
I know I know. People can't stop talking about this book, but there is a reason why! This is my all time favorite book filled with so many themes and twists. Whenever I find myself nervous I embrace the characters bravery and move on. Such a wonderful story that made me cry so many times. I'd recommend to anyone
