Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week is about those books we keep on our TBR's but, for whatever reason, we keep putting them off. I only have one that I am actively avoiding even though it is a critical work and as timely as ever.
When I was younger, I read anything and everything I could get my hands on about the Nazis and WWII. Not so much the military aspects, but the Holocaust. This is one I did not attempt until I was an adult, but once my daughter was born I found I just could not stomach the atrocities as I had done when I was younger. Maybe in part because I still had all the pregnancy hormones flooding my brain, but I could not read without sobbing.
Now my baby is six, and I am still not ready to revisit this one. Perhaps I will not ever be, but I do own a copy now. Previously I was checking it out from the library. But, because it is in high demand, I could only read a little at a time before I had to return it for the next person on hold. Then I would get right back in the hold line again, waiting for my next three weeks to get as far as I could.
Have you read this one? Is it on your TBR? Leave a link to your TTT also and I will be sure to visit.
