Thoughtful Thursday

The wonderful world of books enriches our lives by giving us the opportunity to experience, well pretty much anything one can imagine! We can be transported to a new time or place, experience pure joy or extreme sadness, become a president or a slave etc. etc.

Where has your book taken you this week? What have you learned?

Comment then post a link to this post on your blog for others to find their way here and join in on the fun :)

This week I finished Bending Toward the Sun by Leslie Gilbert-Lurie. I was in Poland and California reliving the life of a Holocaust survivor. It was depressing at times but worth it just to get a glimpse at the impact not only on a survivor but on generations to come.

Now I'm back in high school, falling for the 'bad' guy reading Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Oh the memories! Funny how, after almost 2 decades, it feels like just yesterday :)


  1. I can't wait to read Hush Hush.

    I just read (my review is going up in the next day or two) My Fair Godmother so I was a modern day teenager stuck in the middle ages by her not so good fairy godmother.

    Fun feature btw.


  2. I'm tired from saying 'one more chapter' too many times and staying up past my bedtime, rofl. Hush, Hush is THAT good!!!!

    I have yours on my TBR pile too!

    I hope to do this weekly. I love how books can take you anywhere :)

  3. You have been officially meme'd for Thoughtful Thursdays at Ever Expanding Library

  4. I really want to read Hush Hush!

  5. Jackie ~ yay!

    Sheila ~ yes, you must! I have a feeling this book is going to be huge...and there's a sequel :)

  6. I have been a little boy in a Graveyard for a few days, but you already know that! LOL!

    Now I'm back into The Name of the Wind by Rothfuss.-- I'm Kvothe, going through life hard, but using my brains to get out of a bad situation while plotting revenge all at the same time. Awesome book!
    I've heard so much about Hush, Hush! I want it! LOL! Enjoy!

    By the way, I'm a new follower nice blog!
