Oh man – this book was beautifully written. Set in Nazi Germany and told from the perspective of Death, you can imagine that you will need tissues. All of them. It follows the story of the main character Liesel (aka the book thief) from age nine to fourteen and what her life was like during Hitler’s rule. It’s heartwarming and funny at times but also heartbreaking. Over 10 million copies have been sold – it’s a classic, I’m not sure how I read it so much later. Be prepared to laugh and cry… it’s definitely one of the best books I’ve read in a while!
