I’m always adding books to my TBR list. Here are the books that I added this week, along with where I saw them, and a summary.
Book: Ashes by Kathryn Lasky
From: I can’t remember where I read about it, but it was on someone’s blog.
Summary (Goodreads): Thirteen-year-old Gabriella Schramm’s favorite pastime is reading. With Adolf Hitler slowly but unstoppably rising to power, Gaby turns to her books for comfort while the world around her changes dramatically: The streets become filled with soldiers, Gaby’s sister’s boyfriend raises his arm in a heil Hitler salute, and the Schramms’ family friend Albert Einstein flees the country. When Gaby’s beloved books come under attack, she fears she may have to leave behind the fiction—and the life—she has always cherished.
