“The Nightingale”

I LOVED The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah!  Solid 5 stars, for sure!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The story follows two sisters in France through WWII.  I had not read a book about this time period, besides actual textbooks back in school, and I wasn’t sure if I’d be into it at all.  The book is being turned into a movie, set to be released in January, and it was on the New York Time’s Bestseller List.  So I figured it must be worth reading, despite the dark time period.  I wasn’t expecting a page turner, but this totally was for me.  It was fascinating and eye opening to imagine what struggles the French people faced during the German occupation.  If you want to feel super grateful and have some perspective on all our first world problems, read this.

The main reason I bought this book was because I LOVED The Great Alone so much.  When was the last time a book made you cry?  Like actual real tears, so you have to stop reading because they blur your vision and you need a tissue.  I highly recommend that book from Kristin Hannah too, and if you click on the link, you’ll get to read my blog post about that one.  SO GOOD!

Upon a recommendation for good books about WWII, I ordered All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.  I’ve never read anything from him before, so I am excited to get it in the mail.  What are you reading right now?  I’m about the start Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis.  Another friend recommended it because I seriously have trouble with finding a self improvement book that isn’t BORING.  I’ve never actually finished one, oh except “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck”.  That one was awesome, and if you want to hear all about it, follow that link to my blog post about it.
