Beauty Blogger Book Club :: The Book Thief

Another month means another book down. This past month the BBBC read The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak.

Beauty Blogger Book Club

This story is about a spirited young girl, Liesel Meminger, who was sent to live with a foster family in Germany during WWII. When she was taken to her new family, she couldn’t read and was made fun of at school. Her foster dad shows her the power of words as they have late night sessions reading The Grave Digger’s Handbook together. Despite having a life that no one would wish on, Liesel still finds pleasure in the small things in life, including books that she manages to steal, hence the name of the novel.

The Book Thief

Overall I thought this book was ok. It wasn’t really up my alley of reading since I’m not a huge fan of history. At times it got to be a bit slow for me to read and it also doesn’t have a happy ending so it made me a little sad and depressed at times to read it. However, I did like the relationship that Liesel and her foster dad developed throughout the story. I especially loved how their connection blossomed through reading. Ever since I was little, I’ve been a bookworm so this part of the story really resonated with me.

Where'd You Go Bernadette?

This month was my book choice and I chose Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Sample. I’ve had a sample of this book sitting on my kindle app for awhile. This seemed like a fun and quirky novel. I thought that since it was almost summer this would make a good sit in the sun on the weekend relaxing kinda read :)

Don’t forget to head over to our other beauty blogger’s blogs and check out what they thought of February’s book club pick.

And wanted to give a shout out to our newest BBBC member, Lisa of Uncommon Wife Life. I can’t wait to see what she picks for her monthly choice when it’s her turn later this summer :)

If you love to read, then please join our book club! Email me for more information. And if you don’t have a blog, no worries, we welcome anyone to join the fun of being a bookworm :) Each month, one of the Beauty Blogger Book Club (BBBC) members will choose a book for the Club to read. At the beginning of the following month, we each write a book report/summary for our readers to enjoy and share the book for the following month!

QUESTION // What book are you reading currently?


  1. I agree with you… this was a tough book to read, especially after March’s book – too much death! I am still glad that I read it, but looking forward to a little more light reading. I will not be looking to the Business Insider for my next book, lol!
