I am returning with my feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concernsthe books we love to recommend!
Why I Love...The Book Thief
The Book Thief is such a lovely and touching read.  It's funny because I had a difficult time starting it.  I would start, then stop.  Start again and stop again.  I kept coming back to it because every time I looked around, someone else was recommending it.  I kept thinking, "What am I missing?"  Then one day I didn't stop reading and this is one of the most amazing books I've ever read.  It's told from the point of view of death and he often imparts wise tidbits that are both thoughtful and fun at times.  The characters are all so  wonderful and complex.  It's so difficult to end this book.
I like to recommend this book not because it is amazing (and it is) but because I now that it can be easy to give up on it in the beginning.  It's not that it is slow.  It's just very different and it takes a moment to become accustomed   Because so many people recommended this book to me I couldn't get it out of my head.  I can't believe I would have missed out on something so wonderful.  You can find my review here.
