2017 is coming to an end… and thank goodness for that. It’s been a rough year, to say the least, but that didn’t stop me from reading some pretty freaking awesome books. I didn’t read as much as I wanted to this year, but that just means I’m going to try extra hard in 2018 to get to all the books I want to read.
Too many books, not enough time, am I right?

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys takes place during Stalin’s rule. Lina Vilkas, a girl who loved art, was taken in 1941 along with the her family because they were on the list. The list had a names of people and families that Stalin wanted exterminated. When they were shipped to Siberia, Lina, her family, and her friends have to do whatever it takes to survive.
Even if it means sacrificing everything they ever knew.
