Sarah is hugely supportive of authors and bloggers and I’m delighted she’s going to share her Friday Four today.
Four books I think everyone should read and why
This just blew me away with the story of domestic abuse, especially as it’s the man that is being abused by his wife which you don’t come across very often in books. I went through a total roller coaster of a ride with my emotions and it’s one that will stay with me for a long time to come.
[I agree Sarah – it’s a brilliant book!]
This is another story that really got to me and has stayed with me since I read it. This is a deeply moving story of two boys who grow apart and the direction their lives take. Really is a must read.
I’ve read quite a few books on the Holocaust and found this one very informative and gives you a wider understanding of what went on in the camps and how it affected people in the aftermath. A definite must read if you are interested in the Holocaust.
I read all these as an adult and absolutely loved them. They are definitely for adults just as much as children and transport you into a wonderful world of magic. Great way of escaping the reality of real life.
