Hello, book lovers! 💕
Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it!
I originally saw this post on A Little Haze Book Blog, who is amazing and you should definitely check their blog out.
I’m not sure if I’m going to do more of these types of posts, but it seemed like something fun and different to try. In choosing the book from my TBR, I used a random number generator in order to see which book I was going to talk about.
This week’s book:
With that random number generator, I came up with Night by Elie Wiesel. I’m pretty sure this is one of the oldest books that I have on my TBR as of right now.
The following is from Goodreads:
“Night” — A terrifying account of the Nazi death camp horror that turns a young Jewish boy into an agonized witness to the death of his family…the death of his innocence…and the death of his God. Penetrating and powerful, as personal as “The Diary Of Anne Frank,” “Night” awakens the shocking memory of evil at its absolute and carries with it the unforgettable message that this horror must never be allowed to happen again.
Why I want to read this:
Like I said, this is one of the oldest books on my TBR. It’s been there since 2016, though I’ve been meaning to read it even before that.
But the reason it’s been on my TBR for so long and I haven’t picked it up yet is because of the subject matter. It’s going to tear me to pieces when I read it. I’ve always been interested in learning more about WWII and that time period, but I know that it’s horrific events are going to destroy me. Especially one from a firsthand account. Knowing that someone went through that is heartbreaking and I’m not sure if I’m ready to put myself through that pain just yet.
But I do really want to read it at some point in my life. I think it’s an important and educational read that everyone should read and experience at least once.
So there you have it. I know this was a pretty short post, but there’s a random book from my TBR and why I want to read it. What’s your thoughts on this book? Have you read it? Also, do you participate in this meme? Share your posts with me in the comments below! I’d love to read them!
