Lately I've been spending my time in the young adult section at the library. Pre-reading some of the books and series I think that my daughter may be interested in.
This morning I just finished a book that was absolutely amazing.
The Book Thief
Because I knew absolutely nothing about this book, at first, I was a little dis-oriented and not sure what was coming at me. After several pages however, I realized that the narrator was actually 'death' - speaking in the first person. Definitely a different, (yet surprisingly enjoyable) twist.
If you have a chance to read this book - you should. Poignant, and deeply touching it covers love, loss, and finding family. Enough book report - this one is going into my top 5 books list. You SHOULD read it - I couldn't put it down.
