This book has been on my Must Read List for a while now. I was so excited when my Mom gave it to me that I promptly forgot about it and didn't read it for 3 months. In my defense, I was embroiled in much PTA shenanigans.
As soon as Christmas break began, I picked up the book and had a really hard time putting it down, except that my in laws showed up without warning four days before Christmas and I had to wait on them hand and foot when I was near exhaustion from serving Hot Chocolate to 624 elementary school children.
Finally....they left and I had a whole day to read while my family assembled 8036 LEGOS.
So...I don't know why but lately, I keep reading books that are set in other countries that I'll never ever visit. I think I love this!
Oh. The book! I should tell you what the name of the book is!
The Light Between Oceans!
I don't want to give too much of the book away but you should know that it will pull at your heart strings if you're a mother. If you've ever had a miscarriage, you'll weep. If you've ever been curious about lighthouses and living without electricity, you'll love this book.
If you'd like to read this book. Leave me a comment telling me what your reading goal for 2014 is (mine is 45 books) and I'll pull a winner on WEDNESDAY January 8th.
US residents only, please.
