Finding Rebecca | Eoin Dempsey

A shocking tale of a German boy and a Jewish girl who are living in Jersey when the Germans occupy the island in WWII. This is a well written book, which describes some of the horrors of Auschwitz during that time. Lest we never forget

I enjoyed this book. It is aimed at kids, but is a light easy read after a tough read.

What an odd book. This was recommended to me by @aliincornwall my lovely sister. I liked that it was short stories so easy to read and I get that they have a moral to them.... but they are just odd!

The Parisians | Marius Gabriel

I really enjoyed this book. It gives a real insight into the Ritz in Paris during the Second World War and of the huge disparity between its inhabitants and the rest of Paris. The character Olivia is brought alive and I felt that I desperately wanted her to be ok.

Wow!!! It is not very often women are portrayed this way in books. I thought it was a cleverly written story which kept me guessing as to how it would all turn out. I enjoyed this book

This is an incredible read. Although I knew what happened in the concentration camps, this first hand account is totally shocking. It is so totally incomprehensible what happened and what is described, yet this book brings to life some of the events which went on and how some went out of their way to help.... others went out of their way to make events worse. A must read. We must not forget!

I really enjoyed this book. Not only was it funny but it was also shocking and surprising. I had no idea that doctors were expected to work the number of hours on the trot that Adam had to work. It is amazing that there are not more mistakes. Also, why do people insist on putting things inside themselves?.... just because there is a orifice... it doesn‘t mean inanimate objects (or animate ones) should be placed there!

Let the Right One In | John Ajvide Lindqvist

I really enjoyed this book. Especially the descriptions of what it was like to live in Sweden in the 1980‘s. The author cleverly withholds details about Eli which ensures that you have good feelings regarding Eli and Oskar‘s relationship. Wanting them to stay friends and help each other out.

My 12 year old son read this book and suggested I read it too, so we could talk about it together. I wasn‘t expecting to enjoy it, but I really did. I found the characters interesting and found myself willing them to survive and for Ruby to learn how to use her powers safely.

Powered_By_Plants Sounds great! Is this the one you were talking about? I hope your enjoying your holidays ☀️ 3mo
ReaderLiz Hi, yes, this is the book I was talking about. Both Ollie and I really enjoyed it and it was lovely to be able to talk about a book we had both read and enjoyed. We are having a lovely time, thanks. I hope you had a good break too. 3mo

Wow! I love this book. It is really thought provoking. I knew that women in China bound their daughters feet to make them marriageable, but I hadn‘t really thought about how they went about it. This book is very graphic about what the girls and women went through during their feet binding. The book follows the special Laotong relationship between Snow Flower and Lily. It cleverly depicts how they would have lived and what was expected if them.

I had high hopes for this book. It was ok, but I think it would have been more interesting if it had focused more on the occupation during WWII. I found the story being told by letters a little bit confusing and had to keep checking who was writing to whom. The bits which did cover the war were interesting.
