Happy, happy Sunday, blogging peeps! Another week of 2017 gone! Can you believe how fast this year is already going by? I mean… it’s already February. WTH? Craziness. Anywho… Sunday! Meaning time for another Standalone Sunday post. Let’s check out the recommendations for this week!
Standalone Sunday is a feature created by yours truly where each Sunday we will feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend! There’s tons of focus on books that are part of a series… I thought it’d be nice to focus on some standalone novels, too!
Feel free to join in on this weekly feature by creating your own Standalone Sunday post! And you’re more than welcome to use the image I created. Link to your post in the comments below or make sure you link back to this post so I can check it out and add you down below!
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
Despite their differences, sisters Vianne and Isabelle have always been close. Younger, bolder Isabelle lives in Paris while Vianne is content with life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. But when the Second World War strikes, Antoine is sent off to fight and Vianne finds herself isolated so Isabelle is sent by their father to help her.
As the war progresses, the sisters’ relationship and strength are tested. With life changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Vianne and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions.
If you’ve hung around my blog for a while, you probably already know that I highly recommend this book. When I picked up The Nightingale for a group read on Goodreads, I was not a huge fan of Historical Fiction. Actually, I wasn’t really a fan of it at all. So I was definitely hesitant about it. But I am so grateful that I went ahead and read this book because it forever changed my outlook on the genre.
This novel is absolutely beautiful. The writing is gorgeous, the characters are flawless, and the story is overall romantic. I enjoyed every page of this novel and I just know you will too! A full five star read for me! I don’t have a review of this book on my blog (I read it before I started blogging) but if you’d like to check out my Goodreads review for this one, you can find it HERE.
