At the end of 2008, in the Bella Forum, we started the Sista-hood of Reading Bellas. I fell off the bandwagon after June, which was my month to host. Since we pre-picked the books in advance and I already ordered them all from Amazon, I've been trying to catch up. I just read the book that is slated for October. So, now I'll just be going backwards on the list. :)
I'm not a huge history buff, so I don't know anything about Leningrad. The story is about an elderly lady who has Alzheimers and it reflects on her memories from the war. Her memories are very interesting and the best part of the book. In the end, I never felt like the past and the present meet up properly. I wasn't too big on the way the book ends and felt like the author should of put more into the "present" plot. Overall, it's a light and interesting read. But probably something I wouldn't read again.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday! It's Finale night for BB! Go Jordan and Kevin!
