The Book Thief, by @markuszusak 
I've taken a break from blogging since mid December. My evenings have been wide open - honestly, it's been glorious.
But most importantly, after all these years, I've managed to *finally* read The Book Thief.
Hands down one of the most captivating and beautifully written books I've ever had the privilege of devouring.
I'm so glad I waited until I could genuinely devote time to it and enjoy it. (Speaking as someone who's read a *lot* of books based in/around WWII) it's so original and manages to bring an entirely fresh perspective to WWII. It's poignant, funny, shocking, brave and I found myself bumping into people on the street, not because I was looking at my phone but because my was nose glued to a book for the first time in years. I simply couldn't put it down.
I'm purposefully giving no spoilers here, which makes for a rather vague review. But in short: READ THIS BOOK!
An absolutely cracking start to 2017. I don't really know how I follow this!
