Looking for a good book? I can’t promise I read one this year you’ll be interested in reading, but below are short reviews of what I’ve read so far this year. If you’re still looking, check out what I read in:
For those interested in stories of WWII, and particularly the story of those who suffered inside the concentration camps this is a very interesting read. I had not personally been very familiar with the unique story of how Poland was affected by WWII and had never read an account of those who had been medically experimented on by the Germans inside the concentration camps. In reading the author note I loved the book even more after hearing about how Martha Hall Kelly learned about the “Rabbits” and was inspired to learn all she could and bring their story to life within Lilac Girls. A very interesting read and worth learning about.
Another great read by Stephen King. I found the beginning of the story to be a bit of a slow build, taking quite longer than normal to engage the reader with his main characters, but once the story took off I found myself engrossed in the story. A good little thriller, and since this is a trilogy, I’m intrigued to hear how in the world this could continue on for two more books. I’ll keep reading for sure.
A much more interesting and page turning of a story than I originally expected. The idea of being stuck in a winter over in the South Pole for 8+ months alone sounds like a terrifying read, but then to witness the world that these people know come crashing down around them makes it even more terrifying. It wasn’t the most complex writing or plot, but it was an interesting read on a topic/story you don’t hear very often which made it exciting.
Want to know EVEN MORE about the books I’ve read, am reading, and even maybe the ones on my to-read shelf? Then hop over to my goodreads account and lets be book nerd friends!
Dying for even more Accidental Olympian book nonsense? Well, would you like to hear a funny story about how goodreads made me look like an idiot? You do? Great. I hope you enjoy every minute of my humiliation.
