“Then they drink a cup of coffee together in the kitchen: hot, strong, as much sugar as she wants.” 💙

Beautifully written book that deserves all of the accolades it has received. It’s very atmospheric and vivid and I felt transported to the setting and felt protective of both Marie-Laure and Werner. But I wanted more of an intersecting storyline, I think. It felt like I waited and waited for their stories to connect and when it did, I felt a bit underwhelmed. I did so love the relationship between Marie-Laure and her father, my favorite part of this intricate book. 4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me! Thanks to readwithtoni for getting a group together to read this book that had been sitting on my shelf way too long ! 💙
