I read one book, and one book only. Ok, that's not true. I read parts of other books, but mainly this week was dedicated to finishing the best book I read in 2012. I know that isn't exactly fair, because we are only at the beginning of the third month of 2012, but I have no idea how another book can possibly top this one.
I read Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand. I don't have the time today to dedicate all of what I'd like to say about this book, but I actually had to stop reading it on my lunch breaks at work because I kept crying. Happy and sad tears flowed. This book was amazing! I also plan to bother all of my friends until they at least try to read this. I don't usually do that with books. If I have a recommendation, I just throw it out and don't insist. I'm not going to be so polite with this one. So, if I know you in real life you should probably prepare yourself.
Hopefully sometime soon, I will have a review for you so I can peak your interest more, but just in case I don't, Carrie (who I can be extremely grateful to for loaning me her copy...even though I'm going to have to buy this one) wrote an excellent one already.
Ok, now go read it.
