#ThePullofTheStars #EmmaDonoghue

This book takes place during the Spanish Flu Epidemic 1918 in Dublin in a large hospital that has maternity and flu patients mixed together. It takes place over 3 days and the writing is so good that you get invested in the characters who are well-developed. The book reminded me of Call The Midwife. I would have to say that it is Donoghue‘s best book so far. If you enjoy emotional reads, then you will enjoy this.

💙💙💙💙💙I'd rate this even higher if I could! Such an amazingly written #psychologicalthriller. The 5-year-old perspective on the situation is so cleverly done. Watched the movie yesterday evening after finishing the book. It was good but definitely not as deep and troubling as the book.#kidnapped #emmadonoghue #kidsperspective

This is one of my -I bought this because the ebook only cost 1,99€- purchases, but I loved it! It reminded me a lot of Call the Midwife. It‘s about a midwife working in a ward during the Spanish Flu pandemic in Dublin. Reading about the circumstances of Irish women moved and shocked me.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I am completely obsessed with this book! Wanted to try and make it last till the end of my holiday but just couldn't stop reading! The narrative from Jacks point of view is so powerful, making a harrowing story beautifully innocent.. Love love love! #room #emmadonoghue #holidayread #poolside #summer

While the nurse Lib is on my last nerve, I‘m enjoying the story so far and am intrigued to see what is actually happening to this little girl.

1. The parliament building in Budapest, Hungary, with the Snapchat filter of itself!

3. #Room by #EmmaDonoghue was pretty good
4. Besides groceries, I ordered heating gel hand warmers as a Christmas gift for my mom. She‘s always freezing! ❄
5. A cleaner cloth for my glasses 👓

Want to read 350+ pages through the lens of a 5-year-old product of rape? Yes? Then this book is for you! But it wasn't for me. The story was slow and the only unique aspect was the POV and that bit only annoyed me. I had high hopes for this book and was let down.
