This has been on my to read list forever!! Have you read it? Do I need to get to it immediately? Let me know in the comments!
Beautifully written and emotionally honest, this is a debut novel that explores what it truly means to love someone and what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every single moment this world has to offer.

ON THE ISLAND (ON THE ISLAND, #1)

You guys…I don’t have enough of the right words for how much I love this book. I have been a HUGE fan of Garvis-Graves since I cracked it open and I admit, I wasn’t really sure what to expect when Jaime told me I had to read it. Once I started it I did not want to put it down and thankfully I was on a flight across the country which meant I didn’t have to. If you haven’t read this book yet, you need to (yes…need) because Garvis-Graves creates these wonderful characters and an amazing story.
