Now Reading: Maria Àngels Anglada – The Auschwitz Violin

I got a few books for Christmas this year:

  • The Auschwitz Violin by Maria Àngels Anglada
  • Room by Emma Donaghue
  • Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
  • The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen
  • The Lily Bard series by Charlaine Harris

First up is The Auschwitz Violin by Maria Àngels Anglada, which Cameron bought for me. I love reading books about the war; two of my favourite books are World War Two (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and The Diary of Anne Frank). I’ve got two days off, then it’s back to work for 3 days and then a 3 day weekend, so I’ve got plenty of time to get through a couple of books.

Now it’s time to take a look at the January Sale email from The Book People. I had the catalogue through the door a couple of days ago, and there were some really good deals in there.

I think someone needs to confiscate my credit card…

  1. I aim to read The Diary of Anne Frank in this upcoming year. I perused a few of the opening pages and I liked what I read so I bought a copy that I look forward to finishing.

    I’ve not heard of The Auschwitz Violin. I’ll have to look into it.

    • You won’t be disappointed with The Diary of Anne Frank, I really loved it. Found it a little hard to read though, I can’t even imagine the horror of what she went through.

      I’ve just finished The Auschwitz Violin, it was really good – I’d definitely recommend that too!
