Two sisters' reviews of Young Adult and Middle Grade books, inspired by their lovely library.

Along the Lines Of… (#4) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Along the Lines Of… is a weekly feature/meme held every Sunday here at Gwen & Kate’s Library, in which we provide a list of at least three recommended books with a similar author, writing style, genre, you name it!, to a popular or well-known book, either one provided on our blog or one of your own. (*Image coming soon!)

This week’s Along the Line Of… features The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, a very popular book about WWII and the love of books.
