I'm reading this one right now and it is so delightful! The concept is fun and the characters surprising but familiar. I am rooting for this little band of misfits tucked away on the magical Marsyas Island.

This was quite possibly my favorite book of 2019! Elizabeth Gilbert had so much fun with this story and with these characters. By the end I just wanted to know the main character, to sit down with her and to have her tell me her story all over again.

Anthony Marra has woven together an incredible tapestry of stories here. Each chapter stands alone as a powerful and beautiful moment in and of itself. But when viewed as a whole, you find yourself examining a story that spans nearly a century and connects so many lives.
