Adriana | 3888 comments Welcome Ilse-mari! You've read some great books (I love Wonder!) What did you think about The Husband's Secret?


message 6: by Ilse-mari (new)

Ilse-mari Stenzel | 35 comments Hi Adriana :) I really liked The Husband's Secret, especially because it makes you think - what would I do in that situation? etc. and then it makes you change your mind about a dozen times! I couldn't put it down once I started - I just wish it was a bit longer, my only criticism is that the ending came too quickly/felt a bit short (although maybe just because I didn't want it to end?). Let me know what you think! Are you planning on reading it?

Adriana | 3888 comments I do want to read it if not next month, the month after. Glad you enjoyed it so much (:
