I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.

Hopefully, above, you can actually see my Instagram picture! On Instagram you have to swipe to see all the pictures, since I clumped together both my Book Beginnings and Friday56 posts.
Well, I am back from Amsterdam and I’m going to warn you now — you’re going to get a lot more pictures from my holiday over the next few days. 😀 I was really looking forward to visiting Anne Franks house, but when we got there it was totally booked out two to three months in advance online, so we didn’t go in. I did, however, take a picture of her front door, and I could see the house from the outside. Reading the book and seeing her house certainly put it all in perspective and even though her story didn’t end well, it’s a fascinating slice of history to see what this brave little girl went through.
It’s my current read and I regularly update my reading process over at Goodreads! Do join me. I know I say this a lot, but I really love Goodreads lol.
If you have already read this book, what did you think? Feel free to link up your review to this post!
Discovered in the attic in which she spent the last years of her life, Anne Frank’s remarkable diary has since become a world classic—a powerful reminder of the horrors of war and an eloquent testament to the human spirit.
I can’t wait to find out!
Have a great weekend full of reading. As much as I loved my holiday, it’s good to be back!

Such a classic and important book. I’ve been to Amsterdam twice and had the same experience you did, not being able to visit the house except for a peek at the exterior. Lovely, picturesque city.
It is beautiful 😆 Yep . I hope to go back knowing this now.
I’ve been wanting to read this book! My daughter and son-in-law were in Amsterdam in June, as part of their honeymoon to Prague and adjacent places.
Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.
You’re welcome! hope they had just as much fun as we did. 😊
Sorry to hear you weren’t able to visit inside.
I read the book years ago. Perhaps its time to read it again.
Thanks for your comment, Roberta, I found it in pending. No idea why! At least it gives me a chance to go back to Amsterdam? lol
I don’t read much non-fiction, but I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while. I imagine it’s quite the fascinating read. Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend!
Hope you enjoyed your weekend, too! 😆
I read this as a young girl and it was profound then. I bet it would be just as profound now if I re-read it! Happy weekend! xo
Thank you! I hope you enjoyed yours! (Somehow your posts always go into pending… no idea why?)
I have read Anne Frank’s Diary, but it was so long along that I don’t remember many details anymore.
Sorry. I don’t know what auto-correct did there. Naturally, it should have read “long ago”.
Totally understand your frustration with auto correct lol 😆 happens to me all the time.
I read this when I was in college and I couldn’t stop when I started reading it. One of the reasons I want to visit Amsterdam is to visit the museum too!
Here’s my Friday Reads
Hope you get to go!
I love this book so much. It’s too bad you didn’t get to go inside Anne Frank’s house. I can only imagine what an experience it would be. Hope you enjoy your weekend and that you aren’t too jet lagged.
I slept a lot. I think it’s all the walking we did. 😆
I can’t wait to see the pictures from your trip, Sassy!
Hahaha, thank you!
