Aesthetic: The Book Thief

November 3, 2020

FREE WRITING

Based upon The Book Thief by Markus Zusak 

snow? 
why is there snow? 


A cup of hot tea 
A dark window pane 
An unfinished puzzle 
The lamp that lights up the room 

She grabs a flashlight 
Sits down in her bed 
Slides under her comforter 
Safe from the world 

A boy with bright hair 
She laughs and she'd cried 
She'd swore 
Spent his young life with him 

A girl with books 
She laughed and she toppled over with her 
She related 
She wrote 

They brought her up 
Showed her how to cherish the words 
 Showed her how to make them right 
Taught her to breathe her words like air 



 
Rudyyyyyy im going to cryyyyyy nooooo my boy was toooo youngggg

    This is cool, I read The Book Thief a while ago and it's so good and super sad.
    Have you read All the Light We Cannot See? It's good and it kinda reminds me of The Book Thief.

    THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKSSSSS!!!! ok sorry
    after i got that out: this was really good!! well written especially the last line —it's almost haunting?
    if you liked The Book Thief, try Ruta Sepety's "Between Shades of Grey" and "Salt to the Sea" if you've read them, tell me what you think!! (i LOVEEEE her books)
    ok sorry you've heard too much from me XD
