Last month I took part in this great bookish meme. Last month I actually read 2 of the 3 books that people voted for because the votes in the comments had so many lovely reviews that I actually read Ready Player One and The Five People You Meet In Heaven. So I am going to join in with Berl and Michelle over at My To Be Read List Meme @Because Reading again, yay!
I’m still new(ish) and you might be to, so here is the information you might need.
• On the First Saturday of the Month you simply pick 3 books from you ever increasing #TBRL and write a post inviting your readers to vote for which book they think you should read.
• On the second Saturday of the month you announce which book has won the vote and then you get reading.
• On the third Saturday you don’t need to do anything.
• On the last Saturday in the month you write your book review so everyone can see what you thought.
1. The Book Thief – Markus Zusak
The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel, a little girl who is taken to a new home because her mother can’t afford to take care of her. The story is told by Death, who becomes a character you come to respect and even feel sorry for by the end. … The Book Thief is set in Nazi Germany, at the start of World War Two.
2. The Shack – William Paul Young
Mack’s youngest daughter, Missy, was abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, still trapped in his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack. Against his better judgement Mack arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon. What he finds there will change his life forever.
3. Island Of Secrets – Patricia Wilson
All her life, London-born Angelika has been intrigued by her mother’s secret past. Now planning her wedding, she feels she must visit the remote Crete village her mother grew up in. Angie’s estranged elderly grandmother, Maria, is dying. She welcomes Angie with open arms – it’s time to unburden herself, and tell the story she’ll otherwise take to her grave. It’s the story of the Nazi occupation of Crete during the Second World War, of horror, of courage and of the lengths to which a mother will go to protect her children – and it’s the story of bitter secrets that broke a family apart, and of three enchanting women who come together to heal wounds that have damaged two generations.
