2017 War Through the Generations Reading Challenge: World War II

I had stopped doing challenges in the last three years but I thought I'd participate in this one so that it would make me put aside time to read the awesome books on my bookshelf that deal with this theme.

The WWII Reading Challenge for 2017 is hosted by two bloggers whose blogs I've followed for many years now: Anna of Diary of an Eccentric and Serena of Savvy, Verse and Wit.

It is a no-stress reading challenge. We can set our own goals and read fiction, nonfiction, poetry, children’s books, etc. Whatever strikes our fancy. These can be the years leading up to the war, during the war, or in the few years after the war.  There will also be an end-of-challenge giveaway for those who read the most WWII-related books between Jan. 1, 2017, and Dec. 31, 2017.

The hosts have also decided to host a few read-alongs for the 2017 WWII reading challenge. Here are the books we’ll be reading and I hope to join the read-along for all three:

March: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
June: Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
September: Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum

And these are the books I hope to read from my own bookshelf:

Do you like reading WWII related books?

I will be adding the books that get read and reviewed for this challenge here:

1. The Velvet Hours by Alyson Richman
2. The Garden of Letters by Alyson Richman
