The Hidden Village by Imogen Matthews
The Hidden Village - Imogen Matthews
The Hidden Village is a historical journey of the families who lived in an underground village during WWII. These families were Dutch, Jewish, and Persecuted by the Germans. They lived in a small village in the woods called Berkenhout. The German's caught wind of the village but with the help of the surrounding community they never could find proof of the village. The book follows Sofie as she tries to get used to living in Berkenhout. Her family sent her here to keep her safe during the war.
This book is written with historical facts as well as fiction. The Author Imogen Matthews' mother actually live in this village during the war and told her stories of her time there. Imogen Matthews has also visited the village. She has taken memories from her visit to the village and the stories her Mother told her to write this book. Liam Gerrard narrates this audiobook. He does a pretty good job. I do think this book is more for middle grade to young adult, but it is a interesting story for anyone who likes history or who have a interest in The Dutch during WWII.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Essential Audiobooks. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Things found in books
The Ebony Swan - Phyllis A. Whitney

I love finding things people leave in books but this is the first time I've found something that I left in a book almost 30 years ago!  



I am sick so I decided to stay in my pajamas and rest in bed.  I had pulled out this book to read next because I was sure it was the book I'd had the longest.  It is also a hardcover book and they take up too much room in my shelves.  I started reading it and came across a piece of paper printed in red that looked like a $5 bill.  They were called Safety Bucks.  It is from my first job as a teen which I got when I was 17.  I think this was from 1989 when I was 18.  I really didn't remember much about these but my husband just said they could be used to buy things at the hotel.  I think they were earned for not being injured on the job for a certain length of time.  



This is the time when I met my husband (he worked there too) and in September 1st, 1991 we were married.

Free Fall by Brad Thor
Free Fall: A Prelude to Hidden Order - Brad Thor

What an exciting little read!
It was my first time reading a book from Brad Thor, and I loved the subject matter. Who wouldn't enjoy an espionage thriller with Somali pirates? I know I did, and it also made me want to read more from the author. I even may start this series right, since this novella is #11.5 in the series, but I didn't know that when I sat to read it. I don't think it mattered anyway. I don't feel like I missed out on anything previously so it's all good.

June wrap up
The Flight of the Griffin - C.M. Gray
Cat Lady Embroidery: 380 Ways to Stitch a Cat - Applemints
Gypsy Blood - Jeff Gunhus
Ecstasy: A Novel of Alma Mahler - Mary Sharratt
A Secret Twice Hidden - Shanna Lauffey
The City of Brass - S.A. Chakraborty

So, I finished 6 books this month. Not bad for me. 4 of them were Netgalley reads and all of those were good, as was the most recent installment of the time travel series I follow. The one YA book I read was reasonably good even, with a few allowances.


The only problem is that when I was giving feedback at Netgalley, I went a bit mad and requested too many books again! If my currently reading shelf looks mental, it's because I always put my review promises there, even if I haven't started them yet.


This could take a while.
