I didn’t manage to read quite as many books during February as I did last month. For one reason I wasn’t poorly this month so didn’t spend as much time in bed and my books were not as ‘un-put-down-able’ as the ones I read in January.
No idea why I haven’t read Anne Frank’s Diary before, it has been on my to read list for years! Reading it made me feel incredibly lucky to live in the here and now but so incredibly interesting how they all lived hidden away for so long. Really amazing to read about living through the Nazi occupation in Amersterdam from a young girl’s perspective.
The Kiterunner is an absolutely brilliant book, my favourite this month. At times it was incredible heart breaking and others incredibly heart warming. If you haven’t read it then make sure you do soon.
I think A God in Ruins might have to be the most boring book I have ever read. I am on page 300 currently and every single page has been hard to turn. I am struggling through it though because apparently it is a great book. We will see what happens in the next 200 to make that so. Every now and then it peaks my interest so I continue reading it but I really would not recommend it, it’s only because I am stubborn that I keep on picking it up.
I think in March I’m going to try and read something a big lighter as I’ve spent much of my reading time this year reading about war and the affects of it, needless to say much of my reading time has been spent in tears. The Kiterunner was my absolute favourite this month and I think I am going to have to read it again, I loved it that much!
