The Book Thief

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Starting to read, but finding it very difficult to 'get into'. Not liking the style of writing. Only got to page 31. Will give it another shot.

Still trying to read, trying to like it, but still not there. So many people LOVE it, I must be missing something. Perhaps I will give it rest for a few days. pg 58

Winter Garden

Winter GardenWinter Garden by Kristin Hannah

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beautifully written. Hannah has yet to fail me in her stories, and this is no exception! The is is a novel about the complexities and intricacies that bond a mother and her children. There were a few things that bothered me- but not enough to discourage reading. Stories and secrets, and an epic love story! A keeper for the library to be re-read!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The second of the Millennium Trilogy, continues with Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander involved in a sex trafficking operation. When Salander is accused of a triple murder, Blomkvist delves into the investigation to prove her innocent. I enjoyed it and will be reading the final novel soon.
