Markus and Me
So you know all those folks who faint or cry or whatever at the sight of Lady Gaga, Justin Biebier or back in the day Michael Jackson? Well that is how I feel about Markus Zusak. As I've said before I want to marry him and make beautiful word babies together. He is brilliant!!!!!! According to Publisher's Weekly, The Book Thief is gaining more and more momentum. Totally by word of mouth which must feel pretty darn cool. Mr. Zusak said he didn't even think anyone would read it. Okay so yes on the surface it does sound like a Debbie Downer book; Narrated by Death in Nazi Germany. But it's about books. It's about love. It's about family and it is written so beautifully that you will find yourself saying, "Can I get a witness!!!" Okay, maybe that part is just me, but it is an absolutely luscious book. More delicious and decadent than tiramisu. I've read it twice but think I'm ready to dive in for thirds. If you haven't read it by now, get to it!!!!! Oh and Markus Zusak, I'm here whenever you're ready. (Sorry hubby) Jeannine Zusak, sounds exotic, like I should be wearing kick-ass, stilleto black boots. Until next time.
