Opening Sentence of the Day: The Guernsey Literary and Potatoe Peael Pie Society

"Dear Sydney,
Susan Scott is a wonder."

-- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows.

This has been waiting for me for over a year and I am so excited to finally turn my attention to it.

I was immediately sucked into this epistolary novel set in post-WWII England, including the Channel Island of Guernsey, which had been occupied by Germans during the war.


  1. This book is such a treat! I almost envy your reading it for the first time.

  2. I've heard so many wonderful things about this book. I have to get to it someday! I haven't weeded it so that's a good sign, LOL.

  3. This is one of my favorite books. I hope you continue to enjoy it!

  4. I too greatly enjoyed this book. YAY for epistolary novels. I know it copped a bit of flack as "not being literary enough", but it was a lovely book to read, and would make a perfect Christmas read I think,

  5. My copy is waiting for me too! I just moved it around in the pile again last night.
