According to my Widget on the right-hand side, I had read 18 of my 36 books for the year!
Here is a review of the last three books I have read
#16 The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer (3/5 stars)
This is the story of one man and his life in the early part of the 1900s in Hungary. This was an interesting tale because Hungarian Jews are not usually written about, as the country was a little different in their opinions on Jews. It was a very interesting story, especially because nothing "happened" they just lived and went through the ups and downs of the Holocaust. I cried, cried, cried. The only reason I gave it three stars is because it moved slow at times, due to the lack of climax. It was around 600 pages.
#17 Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosay (4/5 stars)
I really enjoyed the way two stories intersected in this popular novel. The author had a fun way of putting together two separate stories in a mysterious way. I loved that it centered on a portion of the Holocaust that few know about. I do wish we had known more about how others viewed the central character. It was a little predictable at times. Interested in seeing how the movie is done.
#18 The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman (4/5 stars)
What an interesting book, I read for work book club! The tales were interwoven expertly of 20 different people working in the same newspaper and the intricacies of their lives that no one at the paper knew. It makes you really think about the international work environment we all live in! The book also flashed back in time to reveal the history of the paper. However, it was one of those books where nothing really ever happened, the plot had no climax.
