June 2016 – The Book Thief

book thief
Written by Markus Zusak

For the past two years I’ve been hearing so much about The Book Thief. When I heard there was also a movie I got excited, but wanted to read the book first. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the time.

This book follows the tale of a girl named Liesel during WWII. She has a love of books, an accordion-playing foster father, and a Jewish man hidden in her basement. Liesel steals books the Nazi party wishes to destroy, (hence the title.) Everyone says that the characters in this book are rich and very artistically depicted, so I can’t wait to begin!
