Between Shades of Gray - Ruta Sepetys

I initially got this as a Puffin Post book I believe, and I first read it pre-Goodreads

Between Shades of Gray
Between Shades of Gray - Ruta Sepetys This book goes straight to my 'Favorites shelf', I absolutely loved it.

This is not a pretty book, the torture that the characters have to endure is written so realistic, that you can picture in in your head. And believe me, it's brutal!
But even though this book is tragic and heartbreaking, it's heartwarming at the same time. The characters are so well written, and so powerfull. Lina's mom is my absolute favorite in the book; even with all those horrible things that are happening, she keeps trying to give the people hope.

But this book also made me think about WWII, and I was a bit embarresed that I didn't really know much about this part of the war. I've learned a lot about Hitler, the war setting in Germany and France, the 'work'camps for the Jews, but I didn't even remember learning about the Lithouanians (is this the right spelling?) and those camps in Siberia. I'm glad that I got to read and learn about that part of the war now too.

Shortly said: Tragic book, well developed characters, great writingstyle. Looking forward to reading another book from Sepetys.

Ah, the Insanity that is GR Recommendations
Where the Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak
Between Shades of Gray - Ruta Sepetys
Cinder - Marissa Meyer

I just got a recommendation from GoodReads.

 

Because I liked Where the Wild Things Are (in 1969), GR feels sure I would love the audio books of either Between Shades of Gray or Cinder.

 

No offense to any of these titles, but - what in the name of Flying Spaghetti Monster do those three titles have in common, aside that they are all books?

 

Beats me.

August Mini Reviews (The Queen of the Tearling; Quiet; Sisters Red; Silver Shadows; Feed; The Night Circus; Between Shades of Gray):

August Mini Reviews (The Queen of the Tearling; Quiet; Sisters Red; Silver Shadows; Feed; The Night Circus; Between Shades of Gray):

 

"...A promising start to a new high fantasy series with plenty of crossover appeal."

"...Pick this one up for a good dose of romance and the Red Riding Hood hunting wolves blend."

"...An interesting and unusual lens on a post-apocalyptic future..."

 

BUT WHICH BLURB BELONGS TO WHICH BOOK? You'll have to see the post to know :).

 

(Aka I'm too lazy to post it all here).
