Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have something good to read!
Weekend Reads is where I will concentrate on just one of the books I’m reading during the weekend rather than trying to balance multiple ones at once. So many times I say, “I’ll read only one chapter of this book and then I go to the next one” or “I want to read halfway through this book before I can read my other one.” My goal is just enjoy what I’m reading and not stress about how much time I’m devoting to every book or how many chapters I’m reading for each book.
Weekend Reads – April 23-25 2021
For this weekend, I’m planning to focus on…
Letters Across the Sea by Genevieve Graham – I really love reading historical fiction, especially set during a World War, so when I saw this one on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to request it!
Why this read?
World War I and II are parts of history that I like to read and learn about. It’s something that has always struck me. Stories about perseverance, finding hope, and even those that are honest about the devastation people have faced helps me to have an appreciation for these men and women. I know I could never fully understand the true horrors and trying times that individuals faced during these times, I continue to search and search for ways to comprehend.
Even though I appreciate the information out there about this time in history, I prefer to read and learn through the means of stories versus reading just facts. There’s something about diving into the minds of people during those times that make the facts more meaningful and help me to get a deeper understanding of their lives. Of course, historical fiction isn’t the most accurate way to learn, but it is a more comprehensible way for me to learn.
All-in-all, I’ve started reading Letters Across the Sea and can already tell that I’m going to love reading about these characters and what they experience and potentially overcome during WWII.
Happy Weekend Reading!
