On My Shelf: The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman

On My Shelf is an awesome feature hosted by Teresa at Readers Live A Thousand Lives that anyone can join. The idea is to spotlight a book from your TBR shelf; it's a fun way to discuss books with fellow bloggers and, with their help, decide which books are must-reads... and which ones can wait a while longer.

My sweet family surprised me with this book last week; I love the movie tie-in cover. I honestly had not heard of this book until I saw the movie trailer. 

Have you read The Zookeeper's Wife? What are your thoughts? 
Do I drop everything and start reading -- or put it back on my shelf for later?

Hope everyone has a great weekend! See you next week!

  1. I want a big kitty kat like that! I havent heard of this one but you know me with animals! Read it and then tell me all the things!

  2. i haven't seen the movie but this looks like something that might make me cry?

  3. I haven't seen the movie or read the book- but I have heard great things about the book. One of my friends read it and loved it. :)

  4. This one is new to me! I'd not even heard of the movie, woah. I hope you enjoy the book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fantastic weekend, Michele. =)

  5. I've heard of this movie before but haven't watched the trailer yet, but this sounds good. Can't wait to read your review soon :)

  6. I wasn't aware of this book until I saw some promo for the movie. It sounds like a wonderful story and I like that it is based on historical truths. I hope you love it.

  7. I saw this book on Goodreads a while back, and added it to my shelves there. I would LOVE to both read the book, and see the movie! Looking forward to your review when you get to the book!! And what a NICE surprise from your family!!

    Hope you guys are all having an AWESOME, BLESSED day!!!! SUPER BIG TACKLE HUGS!!!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)
