    hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
   hosted by the team at Tynga's Reviews

  Showcase Sunday banner  hosted by Vicky at  Books, Biscuits, and Tea  

My Week in Books . . . April 28-May 4, 2013  
Finished reading...
 Between Shades of Gray   Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
My thoughts:  This book brings awareness to a terrible atrocity that is almost never spoken of.  Kudos to author Ruta Sepetys for a moving historical, fictional account of the brutalities endured by Lithuanians, Latvians, Estonians, and Finns in Siberian labor camps in the 1940s and 1950s.
