Book 18: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
It is a story if a young foster German girl living in Nazi Germany. It is also a story narrated by death, who is very busy at this time in history. It is a good book, it is a different kind of book. It is a tear jerk-er. It is a book not for the younger YA audience but for those who are a bit older. I say this only because I am not sure my preteen would be able to follow and go along with the jerkiness of the story. It is not a smoothly narrated story instead it has weird breaks and interjections.
Definitely worth the read.
Not sure what it up next. I am reading some "parenting" type things right now, and of course working through my final short stories of Fitzgerald. I may pick up a loner newer book, or try to read some DH Lawrence that I downloaded.
