Long Title, Good Book

"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" is an extremely long name for a book and in all honesty if someone wouldn't have recommended this book to me I would have NEVER picked it up. The title is just horrid, sorry but it is. However, with that being said you could apply the old adage "don't judge a book by it's cover" to this one. The style of writing is letters to and from the main character, again not my favorite style of writing because I actually LIKE dialogue. Anyway, the story is great! A different take on WWII. I actually never knew there was such a place as Guernsey but I don't profess to be very good at geography. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who would like a good heart warming story about friendship, trials and love.

I'm jealous! Halloween is always a bore for me. I want to have a party, but until we get a place of our own I just don't want to do it. Hopefully next year!! Have fun with your party. I read all 4 over again earlier this year so I'd be ready too!
