Friday Fives | World War II Fiction

Posted July 9, 2021 by TheNonbinaryLibrarian in friday fives / 2 Comments

I started #FridayFavorites back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. In December, I decided to change it to #FridayFives instead to have more room for topics. If anyone wants to join me, the list for future topics can be found here.

I read quite a bit of World War II fiction, so here are some of my favorites. Let me know which WWII books you enjoy in the comments.

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows

Happy Reading Darlings!

  1. I’ve read three of these and absolutely ADORED Between Shades of Gray. I had to keep clarifying to everyone that it wasn’t “THOSE Shades of Gray” when I would talk about it. I afterwards sought out all of her books and so far haven’t read Fountains of Silence, but it’s in my bag for our August trip to Port Aransas. I love books that teach about a part of history we feel like we know SO MUCH about and then you keep talking about them for ages to everyone. Between was that book for me. (This is Tali from Book Club, btw.)

  2. I enjoyed the literary and potatoe peel… but I haven’t read any others, though the book thief is on my TBR. Two of my WW2 favourites are: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah and The Storteller by Jodi Piccoult. Kat
