    "Are you happy at all?" she asked tentatively. "Of course I'm happy. Why wouldn't I be happy?" "Oh, I don't know. Sometimes you just find reasons not to be." 4 stars for a beautifully written and enchanting book. Summer of Salt is the magical, whimsical story of falling in love...

    IMPORTANT QUESTION! IS THIS BOOK GAY???? ...

    Unlike Katrina Leno?s previous books, the magical realism in Summer of Salt isn?t subtle. The magic in this book is evident right from the beginning and plays a central role in the story. What isn?t evident from the beginning, however, is the important and powerful message this b...

    'I knew that he would use that gun, because that is what small, scared men did: they used things more powerful than themselves to make up the difference. They hid behind weapons of mass destruction: big guns and bigger bombs.'* SO THIS BOOK KINDA BROKE ME AND MAYBE ALSO HEALED ME A ...

    Absolutely stunning. Full review to come. ...

    I personally had no intention of picking up Summer of Salt sooner. In my case, I really want to read it but the instant I discovered the plot would touch rape, I know I?m not in the best place to delve it. Although, impulses happen when you?re bored. Summer of Salt is my first ...

    It was all too easy to be immersed in this world and among these characters once I started reading SUMMER OF SALT. I was instantly drawn into the narrative, and that in part has to do with how well the author brought the characters and the setting to life. I definitely liked that it wa...

    3.5 Stars ?One the island of By-the-Sea you could always smell two things: salt and magic.? I thought that Summer of Salt would be an atmospheric story about a quirky island and the magical sisters who call it home, but it was so much more than that. Summer of Salt explored grief...

    tw: rape I did not expect to love Summer of Salt as much as I did. I mean, I've been hyped for it since it was announced, because. Magic. Sisters. F/F relationship. All of that already had me so excited for this book, but once I actually started it, I feel head over heels in love wi...

    Katrina Leno can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. Her books have soul, they are different and they make you believe a 300-year-old bird actually exist. Summer of Salt is pure gold. ...

    This review originally appeared on Novel Ink. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Summer of Salt is one of those books that quietly sneaks up on you, until before you know it, y...

    This book was AMAZING! Very quirky, different, and weird but I loved it! It was unlike anything I've ever read before. I literally devoured the pages and basically read this book in one sitting. This book has it all, family, friends, first loves, and mystery, all with a slightly dark t...

    "On the island of By-the-Sea you could always smell two things: salt and magic." I can already feel that this is gonna be an Unpopular Opinion Time ?? TW: rape, slut shaming This was?just not my thing. First though, lemme point out the diversity in this book: lesbi...

    Yet another Goodreads-hyped disappointment. Arrrrrgh. Moralistic quasi-feminist gothic tale emerges as one big unholy Alice Hoffman/Nancy Drew mashup. You're going to need a fresher plot. No cliché is omitted: we get witchy twins (one gay, one straight, one hot, one not); eeevil st...

    3.5/5 Stars TW: RAPE I'm kinda torn. There are parts of this book that I really liked. I just feel like the whole thing could have been so much MORE. What I Liked: 1. The Atmospheric Writing - This book felt equal parts like a contemporary, a magical realism and a murde...

    3.5* okay, this was cute and important and i liked it!! however, it felt like a contemporary even though magic was present? i can't even explain it, i just wanted it to feel more magical and i was really curious about that aspect of the book. the whole thing seemed like a beauti...

    Wow Katrina Leno's books are always such treasures tw: rape ...

    I absolutely loved this book. I loved the characters. I loved the fresh, sweet lesbian relationship that didn't define the main characters or steal from a much more important plot. I loved the island and it's on-the-nose quirkiness. I loved the subtle magic. I loved the friendship and ...

    I personally had no intention of picking up Summer of Salt sooner. In my case, I really want to read it but the instant I discovered the plot would touch rape, I know I?m not in the best place to delve it. Although, impulses happen when you?re bored. Summer of Salt is my first ...

    oh my god i am SO ready for this summer book about girls loving girls truly GAYreat content ...

    *An ARC was provided by Edelweiss and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.* "I think a person can be a home, sometimes, just as much as a place or a house can." Based on reviews alone, I knew I was in for a good time when I started this. Little did I know it was going ...

    It was all too easy to be immersed in this world and among these characters once I started reading SUMMER OF SALT. I was instantly drawn into the narrative, and that in part has to do with how well the author brought the characters and the setting to life. I definitely liked that it wa...

    3.5 Stars ?One the island of By-the-Sea you could always smell two things: salt and magic.? I thought that Summer of Salt would be an atmospheric story about a quirky island and the magical sisters who call it home, but it was so much more than that. Summer of Salt explored grief...

    tw: rape I did not expect to love Summer of Salt as much as I did. I mean, I've been hyped for it since it was announced, because. Magic. Sisters. F/F relationship. All of that already had me so excited for this book, but once I actually started it, I feel head over heels in love wi...

    It is no secret that Katrina sent me an ARC of this book and I am so lucky that she did. I love Katrina's writing so much and I read this in two days. Guys. I can't choose a favorite. I love all of her books, Molly Pierce has a special place in my heart, I read Lost & Found when...

    Katrina Leno can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. Her books have soul, they are different and they make you believe a 300-year-old bird actually exist. Summer of Salt is pure gold. ...

    This review originally appeared on Novel Ink. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Summer of Salt is one of those books that quietly sneaks up on you, until before you know it, y...

    This book was AMAZING! Very quirky, different, and weird but I loved it! It was unlike anything I've ever read before. I literally devoured the pages and basically read this book in one sitting. This book has it all, family, friends, first loves, and mystery, all with a slightly dark t...

    I always expect a beautifully magical time when it comes to a Leno book. ?And actually excuse me while I sit here all starry-eyed, but this was EXACTLY as beautiful and magical as I hoped. (Although I think my favourite Leno book is always going to be Everything All at Once because ...

    "Are you happy at all?" she asked tentatively. "Of course I'm happy. Why wouldn't I be happy?" "Oh, I don't know. Sometimes you just find reasons not to be." 4 stars for a beautifully written and enchanting book. Summer of Salt is the magical, whimsical story of falling in love...
