The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

As far as authors go, we should all just bow on down to Markus Zusak and his brilliant stories! He has a way of bringing a sense of poetry to his books that is beautiful, breath-taking and sometimes harsh. He is one of my all time favorite authors! He wrote my number 1, read too many times, highlighted the heck out! But I will talk about that book some other day! Today I just want to give a shout out to one of his books that I HIGHLY recommend called...

As of right now this book has been read by over 325,918 people on Goodreads and has an average star rating of 4.35 out of 5 stars! THAT'S HUGE! 
The book is set in World War II Germany and is about a girl named Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau. What is most intriguing about this book is that it is written from the perspective or rather narrated by Death. 

Go and find this book right now please and thank you!
