2017 Book #1

NightNight by Elie Wiesel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first read this book, back in 2005, I didn’t have near the same life experiences. I was pregnant with my first child at the time, but I didn’t yet have the intimate knowledge of being both a child and a parent. In reading this book now, I found myself viewing the story in the eyes of my son and our relationship. What would it be like to be separated from him in such a terrible experience? What would it be like to watch him be tortured or have him watching me suffer? My eyes have been reopened and my heart aches in a whole new way.

I have many titles – the most important being mom. My son, Dylan, is my life and joy. He definitely keeps me on my feet! I enjoy math, science, coding, computers in general, using tools (amps my ego, what can I say), reading, and watching what I’d like to call a wide variety of television shows (though they can easily be summed up with “Nerdical Spy-Date” shows).
