Trashcanman
Hiroshima | John Hersey

Pickpick

I read this book a few weeks ago and I absolutely can't get it out of my head. A short read, but such an impactful, descriptive and captavating read. It tells the first hand perspective of 6 survivors of the Hiroshima bombing. It realy brings awareness to the lifelong suffering of the survivors, the impact to the city and the loss of life. I highly recommend it.

Amandajoy I read this in college (now, nearly 20 years ago 😮) and it has always stuck with me. 3h
SaturnDoo One of my all time favorites ❤ I first read it in the 80's as required reading in High School. Then again (almost 20 years later) when I went back to college. It has always stuck with me. I was just thinking about it the other day to reread again 😁 2h

Wunderland: A Novel | Jennifer Cody Epstein

Pickpick

Wunderland tackled Nazi Germany from a different angle than I‘ve experienced before. Sometimes heartbreaking, at times infuriating, Wunderland was a 4.5 ⭐️ read for me. I hope my fellow #LMPBC readers agree.

Wunderland will be making its way to @robinb early next week. I am hibernating and reading during the unbearably hot weekend. 😂

The Light in the Ruins | Chris Bohjalian

7 years ago this week THE LIGHT IN THE RUINS was published. The novel began as a re-imagining of Romeo and Juliet set in Tuscany in World War 2 and grew into a tale of a serial killer and an Italian family's collaboration with the Nazis — and the price they'll pay years later.

1. Tagged in post
2. I try to avoid cheetos since a certain person got elected here in the U.S
3. Both. But I see the sunset more.
4. Honestly, I would spend it on my car loan. 1k would just about pay it off.
5. I can't think of a favorite grade in elementary school. I guess I will say 1st since back in the 80s that was when we were taught to read.

“There was also something about the smell of bookshops that was strangely comforting to her. She wondered if it was the scent of ink and paper, or the perfume of binding, string, and glue. Maybe it was the scent of knowledge. Information. Thoughts and ideas. Poetry and love. All of it bound into one perfect, calm place.”

Read for Litsy Markup Postal Book Club (#LMPBC) Round 6 - Group B.

I picked a fantastic WWII novel (if I do say so myself). I hope the rest of the group likes it as much as I did. If so, you are in for a treat.

@Mynameisacolour it‘s off to you next week!
