Bec | 783 comments We have some similar books on our lists! I just finished reading All the Bright Places and quite enjoyed it. What did you think?
I read The Husband's Secret and Still Alice for last years challenge and found them both very interesting.

I really liked All the Bright Places. I meant to read it last year, but lost my hold on it from the library before I got to it and couldn't get it again and it fit it well with this years challenge. I've read The Husband's Secret already this year and really enjoyed it too.
