I've recently been on World War Two reading theme ... and these are some of my absolute favourites! These books inspire me because no matter what happens in my life, I am going through nothing compared to what people went through during the Second World War.
From the first page of The Goldfinch I was enthralled and couldn't put it down. It is a novel on life, death, art, seediness and love. At 784 pages, it has readers divided on whether it needed a good edit or whether it is actually completely perfect.
