Book 17

The Plum Tree is a WWII novel focused on the experience of Christine, a young German woman who loves a Jewish man. Experiencing the war from the perspective of a German victim was unique. It was slow t0 get going, picked up about halfway, and felt rushed at the end. 3.5 stars

There's a complex Robin hood theme here that felt pretty relevant to the covid situation at the time of reading.

I‘m very late in posting this beautiful and sweet smelling birthday gift from @corireadslife 🥳 I was basically huffing the Japanese plum soap bar 😂 Everything is so lovely and thoughtful 🥰 I am, again, overwhelmed by the kindness and friendship I‘ve found in #LitsyLove 😭

I love bad ass forgotten women in history! Went down a massive rabbit hole to read the real life version and found out she went to my workplace (Liverpool Uni) when she visited the U.K. on one of the propaganda tours. I‘m going to see if we have anything on campus!

This may be one of the most incredible stories I‘ve read…and it‘s based on real events. I feel like everyone should read this as it displays the best of humanity when humans are being the worst. You will experience all the emotions but come away in awe of this family and what they‘ve experienced.

Just me and Doggo tonight ♥️ hubby and daughter out at (separate) gigs.
I‘ve had a long bath, ordered tapas from the restaurant round the corner and am about to have a good, quiet read. Perfect. Not sure Sansa thinks so!
