The Life Time Effects of Surviving The Holocaust
But You Did Not Come Back: A Memoir - Marceline Loridan-Ivens,Sandra Smith,Judith Perrignon

Marceline, was taken to a camp with her father when she was just 16. She writes of her nightmare, her community, her country, her family, but mostly the effect of losing her father and his dreams in such a way. Her painful memories that never diminished, while  everyone  kept telling her to just forget. Those who did not walk in her skin could never fully understand their bond and the cost of the break.

This is her story a feel of what being in her skin felt like during and after the war. Her life was forever altered and never safe and free. The story is beautiful, her words direct and full of heartbreak. I finished it still wishing he might come home. This war left few happy ever after stories. I will never forget her,

If only this book starred a different protagonist...
The Magicians - Lev Grossman

Bullet Review:

Rating in flux. I absolutely HATED Quentin, particularly in regards to that DEPLORABLE subplot with Alice. I have NEVER hated a character as much as I've hated Quentin.

And Quentin is why this is currently sitting at 2 stars; otherwise, it was cool and fascinating and funny, and I would likely rate at least 4 stars.

Not Impressed
The Bride Collector - Ted Dekker

Bullet Review:

Pretty awful, but I was only gonna rate 2 stars until I skimmed to the last two chapters and read them. What I learned there dropped this to a 1-star DNF.
