    I love historical fiction, please do a video of what you have on your shelf! I've read some wonderful books because of your recommendation. Lilac Girls was good, it made we want to find out more about this camp.

    All the Light We Cannot See has been on my bookshelf for sooo long. Been meaning to read it but there’s always just too many books!

    I love WWII fiction, but I haven't read All the Light We Cannot See because I know it's going to break me into a million pieces and I'm just not ready! Also, would love to see you talk about all the unread WWII books you have.

    I love WWII fiction as well. All the Light We Cannot See was a beautiful book. I'm reading We Were the Lucky Ones right now and enjoying it. It is set in Poland during WWII and focuses on a large Jewish family and how they survive the war. It is a debut novel and the writing is excellent.

    Loved Sarah's Key  I agree with you that modern storyline isn't as good as Sarah's story.

    Kate Morton is one of my favorite authors of historical fiction, and my favorite is The Forgotten Garden.

    I enjoy reading about WWII fiction, but my favorite eras to read about are the 1920s, 1700s, turn of the century, and 1800s.

    I'm with you. I'm very drawn to Holocaust fiction and personal narratives or fiction where WWII features in some way I just came home from the bookshop with "The German Girl". A few favourites of mine…Kavalier and Clay, The History of Love, The Reader, Lovers at the Chameleon Club, NIght, The Zoo keeper, The Seventh Well, Helene Behr's Journal and Etty Hillesum's journal and letters "An Interrupted Life". I still have to read "All the Light We Cannot See". I watched the movies made of Sarah's Key and The Book Thief. (and a LOT of other movies too)

    I absolutely loved All The Light We Cannot See and also The Book Thief. I also highly recommend The Boy In The Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

    Sarah’s key is literally the saddest movie I have ever watched. I’m ready to read the book now

    I just finished reading all the light we cannot see. I cried many times. It's such a beautiful story and it broke my heart many times because of the unfairness of what happens to some characters

    I recommend the Once series by Morris Gleitzman because it’s about a polish boy who is too naïve and optimistic to see reality as it is in WW II

    I highly recommend Salt to the sea and Between shades of gray from Ruta Sepetys. They are my absolute favourites. And also The girl who fell from the sky from Simon Mawer

    I’m really interested to see what the blind rep is like in this book as a visually impaired person myself.

    I’m enjoying reading WWII novels especially about the strong women who assisted by posing as spies.
    Currently reading:
    “The Lost Girls of Paris” by Pam Jenoff.
    I just finished The Nightingale in just 4 days. It’s a thick book but you can fly thru it in no time.

    April, Thank you for all the other recommendations!
    Much love from the Texas countryside/middle of no where,

    Isn't W pronounced as V in German? You're saying Werners name wrong x

    Love WWII fiction, less a fan of the dual-timeline construction generally. Recently read “The Paris Orphan,” by Natasha Lester, loved it, and i thought she did a great job of dual-timeline. Also read “Island of Sweet Pies and Soldiers,” by Sara Ackerman, and it was set in Pearl Harbor area, focussed not only on the soldiers there but how Japanese were treated. A bit different setting and great!

    Hi – I wonder if you can help: my Dad has severe MS and during Covid I can't visit him, but we can Zoom. So I suggested I could read to him and he loves factual WW2 stories. Do you know of any books designed to be read out loud for adults? I found Enigma by Robert Harris, but it would need "adapting for radio"!! Really hard to follow for the listener. Your thoughts would be welcome.

    I am very intrested in WW2 I do want to know from literary point of view that brought me over here. I believe all those books you recommend here are worth reading as they projects those catastrophic times. Thank You.

    I know this is completely late since the upload was 3 years ago 🤦🏻‍♂️ but I see Gentleman In Moscow on the shelf which I picked that book up for .39 cents at a Salvation Army store which I fully intend to read

    I just finished Between Shades of Gray, The Girl In The Blue Coat, and even though it’s not fiction I just finished the Night series by Elie Wiesel, and I’m starting All The Light We Cannot See this evening! Can’t wait!
