I usually wait and do Stacking the Shelves at the end of the month, but I have already gotten a lot of books over the past week. Paperback Swap has really come through lately, and I have been able to get several books for my mom. I also, of course, picked up some Kindle books.
This is pretty much going to be me gushing. I LOVED this book. It was so good. The quality of the writing was excellent, and the characters were amazing. The good ones and the bad ones. The story was told in alternating first person POVs. I loved watching Hannah uncover the mystery of her family and the part they played in the war. Her mother Lieslelotte was so brave when she was young and so misunderstood later in life. This is one of my favorites this year and has cemented Cathy Gohlke as one of my favorite authors. If you enjoy historical fiction or family drama, you will enjoy this book.
I received this book for free from Tyndale House for the purpose of review.
I read The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah earlier this year. It is one of my favorite books of the year, so far. I loved the dual time periods and the characters. It was very gritty and hard to read in some parts, but there was a lot of hope throughout the story. Here are ten books that remind of The Nightingale.
All of my purchases this month were Kindle books. We gave our entertainment center/book shelves to my son and his new bride.Now my books are homeless and being stored in boxes in my dining room. So...I am currently not buying physical books. We'll see how long I can hold out on that. Here are the ebooks I purchased in October.
Why am I waiting? Although this is not my favorite time period to read about, Lynn Austin is my favorite author. I always read her new releases. The is the final book in the Restoration Chronicles. I enjoyed the second book much better than the first, and I have high hopes that this will be the best of the three.
