I am about 25% through this book and so far, so good!  I will be attending my first official in-person book club on Wednesday evening to discuss The Shadow of the Wind.  I’m really excited to have some bookish friends that are not virtual… it’s not that I don’t love you guys, but it will be nice to have a book discussion face-to-face.

You guys… this book gets ALL the stars!  I don’t hand out 5 star ratings easily… I am currently working on my review, and will have it up this week.

This was such a fresh perspective on life inside Auschwitz during WWII.  Who knew there was a women’s orchestra of Auschwitz that played for those working in the camp?  I sure didn’t.  The Butterfly and the Violin is told from the point of view of a young woman who was part of this orchestra.  Review to come this week!

The title of this book caught my attention.  I HAD to know what this book was about.  I will be listening to this via audiobook.

I can’t wait to finally read this book.  I’ve been looking forward to this book since I received it from Blogging For Books last month.


How did you fair this week?  What is on your bookish agenda for this week?

Happy reading 🙂
