Confessions of a Bookworm

The Island - Lisa Henry I don't think I have words for everything this book made me feel. It was incredibly difficult to get through the first half, because it drags the reader right into the headspace of the two main characters, and there are things happening in those places - on both sides - that at times made my heart want to shrivel up inside my chest and hide. But it's so worth it. There were twists I didn't find mself expecting at all, and an ending that was both believable and exactly what I wanted for the characters all along.

This is the first book I've ever read by the author, but definitely not the last!
