Sundays in Bed With…The Book Thief

SiBW Graphic 2016

Sundays in Bed With… is a meme/feature started by my friend Kate at Midnight Book Girl, where we can highlight the book that we’re spending the day in bed reading (or the one we wish we could be reading all day in bed!).

I’m hoping to spend the day in bed with…

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Guys, I am not loving The Book Thief. I like the story, but the writing is driving me nuts. The narrator tells us what’s going to happen about 6 times (I’m not exaggerating, either) before it actually happens. I can’t handle it! I would have already DNFed by now except this is one of the July selections for my book club and I feel bad because I DNFed one of the books in June. And also about 95% (or more) of my friends on Goodreads who have read The Book Thief loved it. So I’m extending my DNF cutoff point to 50% instead of my usual 25%. I hope to at least get to that halfway mark today so that I can either DNF and move on or decide to finish it.

What are you spending this Sunday in bed with? Let me know in the comments, or leave a link to your post if you’re participating in this meme and I’ll try to stop by your blog!
