From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.
I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!
This week, I'm going to showcase Birdsong!
I returned from a visit to the Battlefields of France and Belgium this week and I am really eager to read more books that are set during the First World War as it really interests me. I was actually given this book as part of a school history award several years ago, but never got around to picking it up. I loved the TV adaptation and can't wait to have the time to read the book.
