The Island: Book Review #1

Happy Friday! I hope you all have something fun planned for this weekend. I’ve got the state fair to eat yummy foods, errands, and a few other stops, but overall a pretty fun and relaxing weekend for the most part! I’m so excited to be bringing my first book review to you. It’s been a long time coming, and I’m so excited to share my find with you!

Book Review #1 -- Jennifer Gail Writes

The book is called The Island written by Elin Hilderbrand. It’s along the lines of your typical love story, yet there’s just something different about it. I won’t give away too much, but I want to share my thoughts with you!

Book Review #1 -- Jennifer Gail Writes

This book surrounds a mom, her two kids (both adults), and her sister. Originally when I picked up this book, I read the front which says “It was supposed to be the perfect getaway…”. Granted, I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but I took it as something was going to take a horrible turn at some point in the book. That didn’t happen. I won’t give you any more details, but all I will say is that it was a story about this family that goes toย their family cottage on the island after some horrific events, and they really bond over the summer. Yes, there are a few love affairs, and that’s the romantic side of it. I loved this because it really took a journey into each individuals’ life and reallyย highlighted their issues and how they handled (or didn’t handle) them.

Overall I would say this book is definitely worth a read if you want to have a book on hand. For me personally, it wasn’t page-turning, which is why it took me a while to finish, but I still thought it was good overall!

Honestly, I’m just really happy that I was able to finish a book this summer! Working two jobs, working out, and trying to get a good nights rests takes precedence. (Netflix, ahem). I’ve set a new goal for myself to read more. I haven’t quite figured how or when I will fit in the time, but I will. I really do enjoy it and I can’t wait to bring you my next review!

Are there any books that you LOVE and that you think I should read??

Have a great weekend!
xo Jennifer
