Show Your Shelf – Tag

I’ve added a new tag feature to my blog called #Showyourshelf. It’s an opportunity for me to take a closer look at the books on my TBR list that are on my bookshelves and Kindle shelves at home.

Lately, I’ve been indulging in buying and receiving a significant number of books. It brings me immense joy to acquire books with sprayed edges and share the unboxing experience on my Instagram stories. However, with the increasing number of books, I find myself double stacking and sometimes even forgetting about them.

I’m planning to sort through my collection of books to determine which ones truly pique my interest, and which ones I may want to give away. I’m seeking assistance from my fellow readers and friends to provide their spoiler-free thoughts in the comments section, indicating whether they believe a particular book would be a good fit for my reading preferences.

I would love to encourage other readers to do the #Showyourshelf tag and go through their own books.

Today’s book pick is a book selected from my top landing bookcase.

I can’t wait to hear what you think about this title!

Thanks for reading and I will catch you next time.

Kelly xoxo

Mussolini’s Island by Sarah Day

Francesco has a memory of his father from early childhood, a night when life for his family changed. From that night, he has vowed to protect his mother and to follow the words of his father: Non mollare. Never give up.

As Francesco is herded into a camp on the island of San Domino, he realises that someone must have handed a list of names to the fascist police. Locked in spartan dormitories, resentment and bitterness between the men grows each day.

Elena, an illiterate island girl, is drawn to the handsome Francesco. Sometimes, she is given a message to pass on. She’s not sure who they are from; she knows simply that Francesco is hiding something. When Elena discovers the truth about the group of prisoners, the fine line between love and hate pulls her towards an act that can only have terrible consequences for all.
