The Light Between Oceans: A Novel - M.L. Stedman

I noticed this 30 Day Book Challenge floating around Booklikes yesterday and thought it looked like a fun, so let's kick it off with my pick for day one...

 

30 Day Book Challenge: Day 1

The best book you read last year...

 

The Light Between Oceans wins the prize for the best book I read in 2012.  The setting was fascinating, the characters were complex, and I loved every beautiful word.  Sure, there were other novels that I read last year and loved and rated highly, but this was the book I found myself recommending to friends time and again, so it obviously left an impression.   If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend it!
