GET ME OFF THE SHELF!


Get Me Off The Shelf! is inspired by *From the Review Pile from*Stepping Out of the Page*hosted by Stephanie. This will be a weekly meme on Thursdays.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you own, but just haven't got around to reading yet. It could be a book you bought yesterday or years ago. Maybe you even have a few books on your eReader just waiting to be swiped to open the pages.


1. Give a synopsis of the book with image.
2. Tell us why you haven't read the book yet, including when you got the book (if you remember).
3. Link the post in the linky below.
4. Visit other blogs and post!

This week's 'Get Me Off the Shelf' book is on my Kindle:
A Stolen Life
   a memoir

By Jaycee Dugard
Hardcover
Pages: 273
Published: July 12, 2011
Publisher: Simon & Schuster


A Stolen Life 

Synopsis via Goodreads:


In the summer of 1991 I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother who loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen.
For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse.

For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation.

On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I don’t think of myself as a victim. I survived.

A Stolen Life is my story—in my own words, in my own way, exactly as I remember it.


MY THOUGHTS:
This is not one of the genres that I usually buy or read. I remembered all the news that the media was giving about her and I really felt so bad for her parent's loss (I was about 20 years old at that time). And then when I heard she was found(18 years later) and the story behind it interest me. 


So a year ago when this memoir came out I thought, yes I'm going to buy and read this miraculous story of this one girl's kidnapping, what she went through with her kidnappers, and her rescue.


Well a year later it is still on my bookshelf. I just can't seem to open this memoir and read it. I'm not sure if it's because I know this will be an emotional read for me. Maybe one day I'll get up the courage to.


Like I always say ... I'll get to it one day ... maybe.

So share what's you need to 'Get off your shelf', or floor, or box . . . I love comments! And if you don't, I'll stalk you :)

Thank-you for stopping by my blog :) I can understand you being hesitant about picking this one up, it's bound to be a heavy read, I was worried about reading The Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride which is about about the friend of kidnapped victim who returns home and that was fiction, I can imagine how much heavier it would be to read an account of something that actually happen.
