Blogger Bookworms: The Light Between Oceans (Part 1)

Welcome!  Katelyn and I are back for month 2 and book 2 of our little virtual book club.  This month we are reading M.L. Steadman’s The Light Between Oceans.  I have only just started the book, but speedy Katelyn flew through it in one weekend.  It’s not too late to grab a copy and link up with us! 


Today is just a chance to link up and let us know you plan to participate and link up with your review of The Light Between Oceans on August 20 (two weeks from today).  As you read, think about the below list of questions.  On August 20, Katelyn and I, and hopeful you, will post our answers to these questions!

August BB

1. Have you ever been to a lighthouse before? If so, which one(s) and what were your experiences; if not, which would you like to visit and why?

2. Could you live on an island like Janus Rock with only your husband for three months at a time? Would you be lonely, or as Tom said, "too busy to be lonely"?

3. If you experienced losses like Isabel and Tom, what would you do if you were in their shoes?

4. {SPOILER} Did you foresee the rattle being such an important part of the story?

5. {SPOILER} Do you feel like Tom did the right thing by reaching out to Hannah?

6. Do you feel like Isabel made the right choice in the end? Were you surprised?

7. Which character did you relate best to, and why?
8. If you could have changed any part of this book, how would it be different?

Today, feel free to just give a little progress report somewhere in your blog post – are you planning to read the book?  Have you read it already or are you just starting?  Whatever the case, two weeks is plenty of time to finish!

I am enjoying the book so far and hope to make some progress this week and weekend.  This book is quite a bit different than our last one – I can’t wait to see what y’all think.
