We all have favorite books. Books that were significant to us at a particular time in our lives. Books that we have read countless times and still treasure our dog eared copies that may be held together with staples, string and tape. Without a doubt, my all time favorite book is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I listened to it on audiobook a few years ago and I think it honestly changed my reading life. Yep, for me this book was a GAME CHANGER. I was entranced by Death as a narrator and little Liesel Meminger’s story set in Nazi Germany, and it seemed like every book I had ever read up until that moment had just been a book. This was something different. A tale that resonated with me so much and I will never, ever forget that reading experience.
The Book Thief is a strongly crafted story. A deeply rich tale of innocence, love, hatred and the power of words. I’ve been patiently following all of the movie buzz for this book and now that there is a trailer I am beyond excited. I cannot wait to see how Hollywood has adapted this heart breaking story. You can add this book to your TBR pile here and see the trailer here. Enjoy!
