Friday Meme: Blog Hop & Follow Friday

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jen @ Crazy-for-books.com 

Blog Hop Question of the Week:  
What are you reading and why are you reading it?


My Answer:
I'm currently reading Sala's Gift by Ann Kirshner because I absolutely love historical fiction and I'm attempting to read any fiction I can that has a WWII/Holocaust backdrop.  I am also reading Almost Home by Pam Jenoff because I love the author and wanted to give it a try.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! What program did you use to make your banner? I use a program called GIMP but it really limits me on what I can do. I'm looking for a better one.

  3. I had know idea you could use publisher lol I'll have to try that out sometime! GIMP is something I downloaded off the internet for free. It's sort of like paint shop pro but it only lets you do the basics.

  7. I've heard such good things about Those Who Save Us. I met the author and she was so nice and ever since then I wanted to read the book, but I haven't got around to it.

  8. Good answer! The answer on my book blog is a little embarassing; it’s a book that’s been sitting on my TBR pile for a year.

    To my shame, I only opened the book because I remember it contained an Amazon gift card.

  10. 'Sala's Gift' does sound interesting - I think I'll add it to my tbr pile.

    I recently got 'A Child al Confino: The True Story of a Jewish Boy and His Mother in Mussolini's Italy' (Amazon gave it away for free for Kindles), so that's two WWII books to look forward to.

    Here's my Book Blogger Hop: 2/4-2/7 post!

  14. The only historical fiction I've ever read is Johnny Tremain. Does that count?
    Happy reading.

  15. @ Beth: Actually I think Johnny Tremain does count. But I think it really just depends on what you think :)
