good books

I just finished such a good book:
...and I have to recommend it. The writing in this thing is out of this world. The words are almost poetic. It's a pretty beautiful way to write about such an ugly thing: Nazi Germany.

Plus I'm almost done with this one:
Oh man, everyone needs to read this book. Although the writing style isn't my favorite, what an amazing, true story. I didn't know a whole lot about Rwanda before and although it's so sad, I was glad to open my eyes to some of what happened over there.

Another reason to be SO thankful for our freedom and where we live.


  1. Thanks for the recommendations. I need to read something soon. I've got a mushy mom brain.

  2. I loved the Book Thief.
    Have you read The Hunger Games yet?

  3. I've read both of those books in the last year. The Book Thief was such an amazing book. I posted about that one on my blog right after I finished it. It left such an impression on me. Left to Tell made me want to learn more about Rwanda. I rented "Hotel Rwanda" after reading the book. I keep hearing about The Hunger Games that was just mentioned. I'm putting that one on hold next.

  4. I read The Book Thief also. I loved how it was narrated by "Death". I heard the book on CD was great because the narrator has such an animated yet distinguished voice and he really makes it very captivating.

  5. Thanks for the recommendations Shawni, I too am in need of a few new book ideas. Being a member my whole life and after a recent 2 and a half year "real" conversion I have read nearly 40 plus spiritually uplifting books on the subject I would LOVE to get a list of your top ten, top twenty favorites. Books that really, really moved you!! Please girl, I'm begging for this post.

    By the way I love your book!! thanks again I appreciate that you get it.

  6. I've read both of those this year as well....really great. I thought it was so interesting to read about Nazi germany from a german child's perspective.

    Hunger Games is a MUST read as well.
