Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
Believe all the hype! This book is amazing. It will make you appreciate life and living in the now. Everything I felt about this book has already been said, so instead I will just say don't wait (like I did) and just get this one already. So worth it!
I can not begin to express how much I LOVED this book. It is so beautifully written and just completely enthralling. It's been a long time since I've been so emotionally touched by a book. Lauren Oliver's writing is more poetic then prose and it absolutely took my breath away!
As far as dystopian world building it isn't the best, but this is so well written it didn't really matter. This one left me wanting more and I can not wait to continue on to book 2 and 3.
Sarah Drew's performance is brilliant and complete perfection.
I wish I could give this one 6 Stars! Worth a credit and then some.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
This a beautifully written book about a young girl who is sent to live in Munich with strangers that could provide for her during WW II. The first half of the book is character driven and how non military Germans lived during the war. Even though they were surrounded by strife and hunger, this story showes that even in the throes of war it is still possible to forge very special relationships through love and kindness.
The second half is more about the war and how so many people were terribly affected by such a gruesome regimen, and having to live everyday with the fear of being bombed. I normally steer clear of books about this horrible atrocity, however, I was convinced by so many wonderful reviews that I had to give it a chance. Thank goodness I did, this is a wonderful story about complicated relationships, and the passion for the written word. The narrator did an excellent job with the characters voices and helped to add to each vivid personality. Definitely credit worthy.
