I suppose I am cheating because this is 6 books but oh well, it’s my post.

  1. Nice picks! I’ve read 5 1/2 of these. The 1/2 was ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE. The writing in that book is so beautiful, but the story got dull for me. I have up halfway through. I love THE HELP, THE BOOK THIEF, and SALT TO THE SEE — all of them are great, vivid historical novels.

    Happy TTT!

    1. Thank you. I think that salt to the sea is like all the light we cannot see without the fantasy element. I do like historical fiction always makes me wish I could go back in time
