This thread is for our discussion of January's book. What did you think of this month's pick??


Ashley | 1 comments Just finished this today! Can’t wait to see what everyone has to say about it!


Claire Tate  (limeadeinmyteacup) | 61 comments Just this second finished. Does everyone love this book? I was really underwhelmed for the first two thirds... until Mia's story kicked in...


Angie | 2 comments I was hooked from the get-go!

Star | 1 comments I’m about 50 pages in and enjoying it so far. Seems very well written and very human characters.

Alanna (alapio) | 1 comments Just picked up my copy today. Currently awaiting the arrival of my first bub so will hopefully get it read asap!


message 7: by Laurie (new) - added it

Laurie Bartels | 8 comments I enjoyed it. I thought the character's talent with photography was very unique. I like how it all tied the story together in a way.


Julia Damberger | 2 comments I just finished it last night and was surprised how much I liked it. Based on the description, I probably wouldn't have read this on my own, but the story and the characters really sucked me in. Definitely enjoyed this pick!

I did enjoy this novel. yay!


Helen Heun | 1 comments Found it a slow burn until the last 100 pages or so! Better than her first book I thought!

Gina Anderson | 3 comments I really enjoyed this book. As a product of a "rule following" household, it really made me think.


message 12: by Virginia (new) - added it

Virginia (vbertacco) | 4 comments I really liked this book and I was hooked right from the beginning. It's been on my tbr pile for ages, so I was glad to finally have a reason to actually read it, lol.


Tiffany | 8 comments I enjoyed the book but wish I knew what happened next to everybody! 😃

Me too!


Linda Fogle | 4 comments I really enjoyed the book. I wish it would of been a little longer to see what happens to everyone.


Meghan | 3 comments I enjoyed it but felt the ending happened too quickly. Really wish I could find out what happened to everyone.


message 17: by Kim (new)

Kim Greene | 1 comments I loved this book! As an (hopefully recovering) overprotective parent it really hit home with me how fear had shaped the mother's relationship with her daughter. I truly enjoyed all the relationships in this book,


Amelie | 1 comments I enjoyed it but I felt like it didn’t really pick up until half way through and then rushed through the ending.


message 19: by Tina (new) - rated it 3 stars

Tina | 2 comments I just finished this book. I don't think I would have picked it up on my own but I did enjoy it. I agree with the others that I would like to have seen what happend to everyone.


Stephanie (sulovebug) | 5 comments I liked this book but didn’t love it. As many others said I would’ve liked an epilogue. So we know or get a glimpse into what happened with everyone and even the house. Maybe it was done on purpose for a second book?

I agree with the underwhelming feeling I got from this book...Mia's & Pearl's stories were the most intriguing.

love.e.reads (lovee-reads) | 9 comments In general, I found it somewhat enjoyable. I would hardly have chosen to read this if not for this book club...yay!!!

I loved the in-depth descriptions and attention that the author paid to Mia's photography. As a hobbyist photographer myself, it resonated with me greatly, and I enjoyed learning about her process...the gifts she left for the family were priceless.

Maybe the author's building up to a sequel but I was disappointed in how open the ending was...I needed some closure!

Yes, that rushing to the ending was real and actually kinda annoyed me :\
