The Book Collectors by Delphine Minoui
Trying to survive
in Syria, they find solace, hope
and sanctuary in books.
Nonfiction ....194 pages ....3.5/5 stars.
(A heartbreaking account of the siege of Daraya under Assad's brutal regime, and the young men who struggled so hard just to be free.)
Her Silent Cry by Lisa Regan
Lucy Ross, age seven,
taken. The motive? Revenge.
Josie's on the case.
Mystery .... 340 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(This is the sixth Detective Josie Quinn mystery, and it's every bit as good as the first one, Vanishing Girls.)
I have The Book Collectors of Daraya on my tbr pile, glad to hear you liked it.ReplyDelete
It's really good...but really heartbreaking, too! There were moments where it made me cry.Delete
The Book Collectors sounds good. We all hope that books can be comfort and sustenance.ReplyDelete
And this book really showed that when the rest of your world is falling apart and life isn't going well, books and the messages they carry become even more important. Books and the friendships these young men developed with each other is what helped sustain them through all the madness and sorrow.Delete
I've also been curious about The Book Collectors, which sounds pretty fascinating--though also terrifying.ReplyDelete
It's just heartbreaking what happened to this community... and the rest of the world just let it happen. It made me sad.Delete
I do love your haiku reviews and all of these books sound good.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I have fun writing them.Delete
Looks like a nice mix- they all sound nice.ReplyDelete
They were all good this time around. :)Delete

It's such a cute read! I really enjoyed it. :)Delete
Well done. The Book Collectors is one I really liked, and I've recommended it to friends.ReplyDelete
The Book Collectors is a book I think everyone should read, just to make them aware that there are other countries in the world that aren't free, and that there are people in the world struggling and dying for a taste of the freedoms we enjoy here.Delete
That was fun. Her Silent Cry sounds good to me.ReplyDelete
I've really been enjoying that mystery series!Delete
These all sound good, Lark, especially Her Silent Cry.ReplyDelete
Her Silent Cry is really good. But I've liked most of the Lisa Regan books that I've read in that series. :)Delete
Nice, very brief reviews. The Book Collectors seems the mostly read for me, of the three.ReplyDelete
The Book Collectors is so good. It's also very sad, but an important story to know.Delete
i like the haiku idea and how you use it... definitely original concept...ReplyDelete
Thanks! I don't always get the syllable count right, but I have fun trying. :)Delete
Love your haiku reviews, Lark! They're so fun! All of these books sound good.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Ashley! :)Delete
The Book Collectors looks like something I should add to my TBR but I guess it's going to be a tough read.ReplyDelete
It has some very sad moments, but there's also hope. And I so admired the young men's resilience.Delete
I need to remember The Book Collectors for nonfiction November! As always, love your haiku reviews!ReplyDelete
The Book Collectors would be perfect for nonfiction November! :)Delete

The Book Collectors is great! Very moving.Delete
Sounds like it. Thanks.Delete
Actually, I have read a book about these guys, as well. Syria's Secret Library by Mike Thomson. But I will have a look for this one, as well.Delete
And I'll have to look for Syria's Secret Library! :DDelete
I think it will be interesting to see this from two different sides.Delete
I do, too. And hey, my library actually has a copy of Syria's Secret Library! :D so yay.Delete
