#SundayBookReview (except on a Monday 😱)
#Homegoing by #YaaGyasi. Very good. The story follows two African girls, one who is sold into slavery and one who stays in Africa. The book follows their descendants across the centuries to modern day. 🐸🐸🐸🐸
#TheSoldiersWife by #MargaretLeroy. The story of a family living on Guernsey Island during WWII. Loved it! 🐸🐸🐸🐸
#TheAbsolutlyTrueDiaryOfAPartTimeIndian by #ShermanAlexie. Very good. I laughed out loud. I cried. 🐸🐸🐸🐸
#Delerium by #LaurenOliver. This is a YA series about a future where love is a disease that has been eradicated. 🐸🐸🐸 🐛

Good stuff this week for my #SundayBookReview.
First up are two stories by #JodiPicoult. First is a short story called #WhereTheresSmoke. I REALLY wish this was a whole book! I am hooked and want the fleshed out tale!!! 🐸🐸🐸🐸
The second of Picoult's that I read was a novella called #LargerThanLife. I loved this one as well. 🐘🐘🐘🐘 (read it and you'll know why it got 4 elephants instead of four frogs 😘)
#PeaceLikeARiver by #LeifEnger. Oh, I really loved this book. 🐸🐸🐸🐸
#SecretsOfACharmedLife by #SusanMeissner. I am constantly surprised at how WWII historical fiction can vary so widely on topic. I really enjoyed this book. It was told from the perspective of two girls sent to live in the country of England during WWII. Good book! 🐸🐸🐸🐸
(You may be wondering what the frogs are. They are my rating system. Five means I loved it so much and it changed my life. Four is very good. Three is I liked it. Sometimes I add a caterpillar for a half frog. 😘😘)
So, what are you reading this week??

I'm happy to say that 2017 has begun with two great reads!
#LettersToTheLost by #IonaGrey. A clever told love story, bouncing between WWII and present day. 🐸🐸🐸🐸
#TheKitchenHouse by #KathleenGrissom. Wonderfully told story of loss, slavery, family and the love that binds us all. 🐸🐸🐸🐸
