War Through the Generations Challenge

I've decided I want to join Serena and Anna on their quest to read more and learn more about the different wars through the generations. For this challenge, I will read five books this year dealing with WWII. For complete challenge instructions and to join click HERE.

After looking through the amazing list Serena and Anna have put together, I've decided to read the following five books:

1. Atonement by Ian McEwan

2. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

3. The True Story of Hansel and Gretel by Louise Murphy

4. Lily's Crossing by Patricia Reilly Giff

5. The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw

I look forward to the challenge of this challenge! Wish me luck!
