MMS book club

April is moving in quite quickly! March came in like a lion, and I am hoping that it will go out like a lamb! This winter weather has lasted FOREVER! However, with the colder weather, there has been quite a bit more time to read and find new books to add to my ever-growing mountain.

This month we are reading the first installment of the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson, and it is a book that is worth the time! I have loved it so far! But, we need to announce the new read that is upcoming! I have been eyeing this book for a while, and April just seemed the perfect month to pull it out! We are going to be reading “Salt To The Sea” by Ruta Sepetys. This book promises to be fabulous! I have seen nothing but rave reviews. While it was originally written as a young adult novel, it has quickly gained some ground with adult readers, who have lauded it as one of the best books they have ever read.

Excerpt from

World War II is drawing to a close in East Prussia and thousands of refugees are on a desperate trek toward freedom, many with something to hide. Among them are Joana, Emilia, and Florian, whose paths converge en route to the ship that promises salvation, the Wilhelm Gustloff. Forced by circumstance to unite, the three find their strength, courage, and trust in each other tested with each step closer to safety.

Just when it seems freedom is within their grasp, tragedy strikes. Not country, nor culture, nor status matter as all ten thousand people—adults and children alike—aboard must fight for the same thing: survival.
