Summer Reads

This book is a book that I will never forget. The author spent time with the tattooist who was at Auschwitz and then he wrote his story. This is a dark and the saddest book I've ever read. I can't imagine the millions of people who suffered in the concentration camps during the Holocaust. I loved this book although it is emotionally draining. But, I think everyone should read it.

I loved this book. LOVED it! I received this book at our book club book exchange and the lady that brought it couldn't stop talking about how good it was. It lived up to all my expectations. I will say that I'm not okay with a "same time every year" in real life, but in the book it was great. This book is about a man and a women who have a great weekend on Nantucket and then for the follow 28 summers, they meet at the same time each year to be together. They meet no matter what is happening in their personal lives. At the beginning of each year it tells about what is happening that year, in real life. The book ends in 2020, and oh my goodness....spot on! 
I loved everything about this book and I highly recommend it.

I have always been intrigued with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. I would read things in this book and then Google things to see if it was true or what happened afterwards. This book was very well written and a lot of research went into this book prior to the author writing it. This book did a wonderful job of showing us Jackie O's life. I recommend this book. 

I will say that I'm sad I only finished three books over summer. I had time because of COVID we've been at home but I'm hoping to pick back up reading over the next few months! Have you read any great books lately?
