ABC Reads Challenge

It's time for the ABC Reads link-up again, hosted by Andrea and Mia.

This month, I only read one book on my ABC reads list. I did read another book for book club, but that letter was already accounted for.

I crossed "A" off my list with About the Night by Anat Talshir.

I thought this book was interesting, and set in Jerusalem which is an area that I'm not very familiar with. Well, in the modern sense anyway. However, it did seem to drag a bit for me. The basic gist is that an Arab and a Jew fall in love right before the war that separates the city, and chronicles their "love" for 19 years. I only gave it three stars on Goodreads. I don't want to say anything bad about it though, because it was a nice book. But...just nice.

What did you read this month? Link up and tell us!


  1. It's so ironic that you read this book because I was just (seriously, just yesterday) looking at it and trying to decide if I should give it a shot. Glad to hear your review! I ultimately passed on it so I'm glad I'm not missing anything stellar! Thanks for linking up!! :)

  2. I haven't heard of this book before but it sounds like I don't need to rush out and get it. :) Thanks for your honest review and thanks for linking up with us!

  3. I've never heard of this book before! I know what you mean about a book being fine but just nice.
