What I am reading lately....


I am sure you all know by now The Book Thief came out as a movie earlier this year.  I always try to read the books before the movies come out so I am not bias after the fact. I don't know if this always works out in the end or if it is true but that is always the plan. I had not heard about The Book Thief until the movie but decided I would wait on the movie until I read the book.

The Book Thief is about Nazi Germany in 1939.  A little foster girl meets her new family after witnessing her brother die and her mom leave her behind. She is uneducated and alone. Slowly she starts to feel comfortable with her new family, especially her father who helps her learn to read. She becomes passionate for her reading and books.Through these books she builds strong relationships with her new family and friends and finds herself.
