A Bibliophile’s Pile (4): Slow Week

A Bibliophile’s Pile (as in TBR pile) is a new feature for 2017. It’s going to be very similar to my Mini Review posts, but instead of theming each post, I’m just going to list what I’ve read in the past week. Easy peasy.

Read

30254926Almost Autumn by Marianne Kaurin (audiobook / library)
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In the same genre as Code Name Verity and Between Shades of Gray, this is a powerful WWII story. I found the language, even in translation, to be powerful, sad, and ultimately hopeful.


Classics Unfolded: Pride and Prejudice by Becca Stadtlander (physical book / own / with kids)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I read this lovely little P&P adaptation to my daughter to celebrate the 204th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice, originally published January 28, 1813. That, plus coffee in one of my P&P mugs, made for a fun time!

      She was already familiar with P&P from the BabyLit books, but this had actual quotes, which was cool. Almost Autumn is categorized as YA on Goodreads, and the MC is a 15 year old girl. But the story is really told from multiple viewpoints, many of them adults, sonit didn’t feel overly YA to me.
