Friday 56:

With Fredasvoice @fredalicious and on Instagram as @fredasphotos #Friday56

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.

My Thoughts:

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.

In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, until their whereabouts were betrayed to the Gestapo, they and another family lived cloistered in the “Secret Annexe” of an old office building. Cut off from the outside world, they faced hunger, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death.In her diary Anne Frank recorded vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving, and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short.

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!

Luv Sassy

  1. 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.

  2. 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!
