I have been such a book worm lately! I can't seem to stop reading. I had been in a book slump for a while. I felt like I was reading the same story over and over again with just different characters. In the past couple of weeks I have blown through several books that were recommended to me and that I would definitly recommend. I am out of my slump and now have my thirst for books back!
If you want a light, happy book - don't read this. Yes, the story is sad, but it's beautiful and extremely touching. It's a different take on the holocaust. It's a story we don't typically hear.
This quickly became one of my favorite books.
I could not put this book down. It was amazing to see what Carolyn Jessop went through and how she escaped her life of polygamy. This book definitly opened my eyes. I had no idea there were people like this still today. In our country, no less.
(I originally heard about this book on Ruthie's blog - thanks for the reccomendation, Ruthie!)
Did you love The Hunger Games? Well, this is exxxxtremely similar to that, so if you miss reading about Katniss, you can read about Tris and how she handles a dystopian society. I liked this book! It was a page turner and I really wanted to see what happened next. It's a quick read, but a good one, especially for summer.
(Thanks Paige for this one!!)
