I'm currently completely and totally obsessed with The Book Thief. Have you read it? It takes place in Nazi Germany and is told from the point of view of Death (like the grim reaper, but not exactly, as he explains). Which I know makes it sound dark, but it's the kind of darkness you can handle because there's beams of light all throughout it. Does that make any sense? The writing is so achingly beautiful, I want to put in my pocket to keep forever.
My friend Murph recommended it to me during our cabin weekend a few weeks ago when the conversation turned to favorite books and I am so, so glad she did. Do you have any favorite books? I always love to reread The Great Gatsby in the summer.
