This week. Quite a few in fact. The lemon Grove. The book thief. The dark heroine. And I’ve finally finished the 10pm question.
I loved the book thief. The narrator’s voice. The humanity. The pain and sadness and hope and fierce joy. I almost started over reading it straight away. Instead I gave it to Big and I’m hoping she’ll enjoy it too.
This was a book that wormed its way into my soul, and I think will never leave me. I read a lot of books that are eminently forgettable, and a few that change me forever, and this is definitely one of the latter.
It’s hard to know how someone else will react to a book. We enjoy lots of the same books (we both really want to read Allegiant for example) but she’s at such a different stage in her life that I wonder whether this one will work for her.
I don’t know.
