>> Wednesday, July 25, 2012 – book review
it's hard to squeeze in reading time during the summer. so much going on... and my kids think if i sit down to read that it means they have to instantly get bored out of their minds. oh well. i can still sneak in a good 30 minutes at night before i doze off and the book smashes down on my face. (now if that doesn't make you jump, i don't know what does. haha)
by Julie Otsuka
4 stars. this book was a little slow for me at first, but it had me sucked in by the end. it was very interesting to learn about how the Japanese-Americans were viewed and treated here during the 2nd World War. i think i'd be interested in reading another book about this if anyone knows of a good one??

by Harry Bernstein
4.5 stars. the author was in his 90's when he decided to write this book about his childhood. living in England during the World War I he tells about his street that is separated by an "invisible wall"... the Jewish families on one side and the Christian families on the other.
now i look forward to reading "The Dream" which is a continuation of his story here in the US.

by Alice Hoffman
4 stars. i wouldn't say this is necessarily an easy read. (for me at least) but i did enjoy the book. i loved getting to know each of the women in the book and how their lives intertwined with each other.
have you been reading this summer?? anything good?
