Book Chat Thursday

Next week: 2012 is half over.  So what have been your favorite books of the year so far.  Or just share what you’ve read so far this year. — Sweet Green Tangerine

The Book Thief. Hands down, winner!

This book brings out all kinds of emotion. First it’s about a young girl growing up during WWII. We all know that anyone living in these times would have it difficult but this is from the perspective of Death. Who knew HE had it the most difficult, with years and years of hard labor carrying all those souls that died. He grows fond of a young girl he sees and watches her life and the effects that the war and the people around have on her.

This book is profoundly moving. Absolutely so ingenious in its writing. The emotions that it wrought were amazing. Yes it is a devastating read but also so uplifting in its own way. Definitely my winner for the year!

    1. I’ll warn you, it’s a long one! I just couldn’t stop gushing over it!

  2. You’re the second person to mention The Book Thief today and I love it! I read this one a couple years ago and it is easily one of my all-time faves. 🙂
