TBR Thursday – #2

Hello and welcome to my second ever TBR Thursday. This is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly Faye Reads, where you post a title from TBR and find out what other readers think about it. Considering I have literally over a thousand books, I thought this was the perfect meme for me.

This week, we have the Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris (Synopsis Below) a book that have been on my physical shelves for faaaaar to long.. Pop in and let me know what you think about it.

In 1942, Lale Sokolov arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He was given the job of tattooing the prisoners marked for survival – scratching numbers into his fellow victims’ arms in indelible ink to create what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust. Waiting in line to be tattooed, terrified and shaking, was a young girl. For Lale – a dandy, a jack-the-lad, a bit of a chancer – it was love at first sight. And he was determined not only to survive himself, but to ensure this woman, Gita, did, too. So begins one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz.

  1. I have a pretty unpopular opinion on this book I think! I read it a few months ago and I just didn’t love it. The story itself was good but it was missing the emotion. I didn’t feel anything even when reading about all the horrific things that were happening around the camp it was written in such a way that it was just a description and nothing that hits you in the feels!
