The Soldier’s Wife by Margaret Leroy – a #Gr8tBooks Read

Tonight is the Gr8t Reads Book Club

and we are discussing The Soldier’s Wife by Margaret Leroy

You may recall that I finished this book during

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!

My review will be a little different this time.

I will interpret the book through greeting cards

Evelyn warning Vivienne against inviting the Hun into the house

Little Millie enjoying some fresh gache that her Mummy made

Vivienne and Gunther sharing a book together

Little Millie and her best friend Simon

discussing the “ghosts” that they see in Mr. Mahy’s barn.

the ghost turns out to be a hungry escaped worker

and finally

the occupation is over!

Let’s party!

I give this gr8t read 4 paws!

#Readathon updates

Hi Friends. I’m still reading The Soldier’s Wife.  Ive had a bit of an up and down day.  I picked up my World Book Night books and enjoyed a latte hoping the caffeine would help keep me up.  Seeing as its 11pm I guess it’s working!

But now, I’ll need reinforcement.  I’ve moved from my comfy chair in the “formal” living room to the couch in the family room.  Coffee’s dripping as we speak.  My goal is to FINISH this book before I either: a) go to bed or b) choose a new book.

Follow my updates on twitter: @Pamlovesbooks  and help me choose my next book should the coffee allow me to stay awake!

Good luck to those of you who are reading!
