So this happened today, on Just the Right Book Podcast... so cool!!!
Loved this one! If you liked the Nightingale, the Book Thief, and Everyone Brave is Forgiven, this ones for you! Two stories intertwine- one from WWI and one from WWII. I could not put this one down!
Placidia's story is told through letters and diary entries, which is a great structure for this novel. It was far more interesting that just a straightforward telling of the events. We learn about what happened to Placidia in bits and pieces and this historical fiction novel takes on the air of a work of suspense. I haven't read a lot of historical fiction lately, and this book reminded me of why I love the genre so much.
This is non-fiction that reads like fiction. The author's writing style has something to do with that, but it's also because it's so hard to believe that these poor people were being killed off and nothing was being done about it. The older I get, the more I realize that so much was left out of the history lessons I learned in school, which is why books like this one are so important.
Preliminary pile of books to take on next month's vacation- plus the kindle. Obviously.
Any others I should add to my stacks?
This is the perfect beach read. It was so funny that I literally laughed out loud, not once, but multiple times. There's enough of a plot to keep you interested, but not enough to make you think too hard. The characters are fun, quirky, and sometimes just plain weird, the way your friends in real life actually are. If you're looking for a fun book you can read in a day, this is it.
I was smiling the entire time I was reading this- such a fun read!
Check out this beautiful journal my mom made me for my birthday! It actually has four little journals inside; a datebook, a reading journal, and two blank journals. All the charms are book related- I love it!
I read mixed reviews on this one, so I wasn't sure what to think when I started, but I really enjoyed this. I read it in one sitting and although sometimes the characters made me want to scream in frustration, I think the author did a great job portraying these two flawed individuals and their friendship.
This was a fun, quick read. The characters were all pretty self absorbed, and not super likable but that made it more fun when they self- destructed. A great book for your beach bag.
*note to any sensitive souls out there- quite a lot of sex and foul language in this one
Caught this cool number- I am so happy to have discovered Litsy!
This one has been on my TBR list for along time. I enjoyed it but I did think that the main character was frustratingly naive, so much so that she was not really a believable character for me. Not sure if I should read Glory over Everything or pass on it. Thoughts?
