Book Friend Erin is winning big these days. And I am not talking about the adorable baby she just birthed and practically named after my baby. (Hi, baby Lane!) She lent me The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult her second awesome lend in a row.
I had no idea what this book was about and frankly am kind of tired of Picoult but just grabbed it since Erin lent it to me. The Storyteller is probably my favorite Picoult book. (My Sister’s Keeper is still a big winner in my… um, book.) The ending is a stunner. I mean just wow. Totally on-brand for Picoult and also for the Bookworm.
Unbeknownst to me this book had a Holocaust theme. I usually don’t like fictitious Holocaust stories as much since there are so many incredible real stories out there, but Picoult did her homework. Did I mention wow?
I feel comfortable giving this much praise to Erin since I can 100% guarantee that she hasn’t read this blog in years. Note the plural there people. Years. And it’s probably been even longer since she took the time to make fun of it. A third and final wow.
