Bookworm Update

Hey Bookworms,

Gia here. I hope that you guys are enjoying my reviews. I am in the middle of writing a review on Petals in the Ashes by Mary Hooper.  It is a sequel to At the Sign of the Sugared PlumIt is about the great fire of London. I wanted to get the review out a few days ago but I have been super busy this week.

In addition, I'm in a bit of a book rut. Right now I am reading two books: Distant Waves by Suzanne Weyn and The Coldest Winter by Elizabeth Lutzeier, and I'm not liking either of them.  I will get through both of them, then review them (both hopefully).

This weekend I went to Shakespeare and Co. in Paris (For more information see Where I get my books). My dad told me that he would buy me one book if I found one I liked.  For me, finding only one book, in a bookstore full of books, was impossible! However, after a good 20 minutes in Shakespeare and Co. I found myself looking at my dad with my top three books in hand. We talked about them for a little while and I decided on Annexed by Sharon Dogar. It is a novel about Peter van Pels. He was the boy who Anne fell in love with during her time in hiding. I can't wait to read it because everyone knows about Anne Frank's time in the annex but not Peter's. I find stories better with two sides then one.

Thank you, thank you so much for staying with me during my book rut bookworms.
Never forget...

Once a bookworm, always a bookworm. -Gia
