Keri  | 92 comments I was going to read "The Color Purple" for this category but I have really been wanting to read "All the Light We Cannot See" so I think I will be reading it instead! Yay!!

Erica | 214 comments Wow, I just finished it. Pretty heavy and sad at times but I really enjoyed it.

Hannah Norman (hannahnorman) | 49 comments This is what I will be reading as well!

Samantha | 84 comments I just finished this book. What a brilliant read. It was hard to put down, very descriptive and just beautifully written.

Keri  | 92 comments I finally finished this book, which took longer than I was expecting. I wasn't as impressed with it as others seem to be, maybe I just had too great of expectations. It is a very beautifully written book but I just didn't enjoy the story that much. I found it a little boring with not much happening. I was surprised with some parts of the ending though. I thought it would be different. 3.5 out of 5 for me.

Laura | 599 comments Mod
I just started this today. I'm only a few chapters in and can already see why people are talking about the wonderful descriptions. I think it will become easier to read with time. I've learned that I always take a little while to get the rhythm of each author's writing down and this one is particularly different with the French feel.

Hopefully I like it as much as so many others have :)

Hannah Norman (hannahnorman) | 49 comments What a beautifully written novel. The descriptions were wonderful; not overdone like they could have been. I was quite impressed!

Krysta | 115 comments I start this on Saturday and so far I'm really enjoying it.

message 14: by Bec (new) - rated it 4 stars

Bec | 64 comments I finished this earlier this week. I enjoyed it in the end but took me a while to work out who was who and the jumping back in forth in time was a bit confusing at first but once I got further in I started to understand. Overall I give it 4 stars.

akaellen | 19 comments Excellent book! I gave it 4 stars.

Grace Meredith (koreantrash) I just got this from the library miraculously! It had like 411 holds. I'd been waiting for about three months though. LOL so excited to start after all the hype and award-winning!

Megan (bookworm_booklover) | 170 comments This is the book I plan to read for this week. I'm probably going to start it really soon and wanted to see what everyone's thoughts were. I'm a lot more excited to read it now! :D

Jennifer Van Beveren | 93 comments LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!
