    1. Such a thrilling read! The main characters were all so interesting and I loved how much mystery and tension there was in each of their stories. I also loved the rich world building! I'm not usually big on history, but I loved the way the history was presented here. Between the setting and the writing, everything was SO vivid, which just amped up the intensity.Overall, this was a fantastic historical standalone. I definitely recommend it, especially if you like emotionally gripping reads with lot [...]

    2. I try, I really do, but Sepetys's war stories do nothing for me. Yes, I know I'm in the minority. I was one of few who didn't love her debut - Between Shades of Gray - and much preferred her second book - Out of the Easy. Now she returns to World War II and, once again, I don't get it.As with her first novel, I feel a little uncomfortable being negative about these kinds of books. This was a horrific time when some terrible atrocities were committed and I applaud the author for always focusing o [...]

    3. (4.5) This book was beautiful. It's gonna take a minute for all my thoughts to set in. Video review to come!

    4. This swift-footed, kind-hearted historical is intensely satisfying in just about all the ways a novel can be satisfying. Without further ado, here are five things you should know about it before picking it up:1. A lot of times, historical fiction shows its work. As a history major, I don't mind a research-filled brick of a book, but I'd think carefully about who I recommended it to. Historical can be dense. Salt to the Sea is not that book: Sepetys chooses her word battles carefully for an incre [...]

    5. Update: Here is my video review youtube/watch?v=oubBCThis book is a masterpiece. It takes place during WW2 and follows 4 characters as they are seeking freedom on the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety to all. Going into it I was very apprehensive about reading it. Historical fiction is not a genre I typically reach for. But this book blew me away. It's safe to say that this book was the best book I have read this year. The writing in the book was so phenomenal. The way that Ruta laid [...]

    6. 4.5 stars.No wonder SALT TO THE SEA won the 2016 Choice Award for Young Adult Fiction. It’s pretty darn captivating. Every time I finish reading an historical novel, especially the WWII ones, I find the need to congratulate myself. It’s no secret that those novels are usually heavy in emotions and historical elements.Yet Ruta Sepetys made reading this YA historical novel so easy. I didn’t even feel the necessity to take a dozen breaks between chapters. And that’s because it’s so…Acc [...]

    7. Such a beautiful yet tragic story. Ruta Sepetys has such a way with words. Video review to come

    8. “Joana Vilkas, your daughter, your sister. She is salt to the sea.”I’ve been waiting for this book ever since I finished reading Between Shades of Grey back in August.I’ll admit that I had very high expections for this book and I’m glad that every single one of them was met. I could not stop reading Salt to the sea, I kept telling myself just one more chapter, just one more (we all know how well that works). I enjoyed reading from every main character and (view spoiler)[ wished we got [...]

    9. Before starting 'Salt to the Sea', I had heard quite a lot of praise for the book. In fact, I was a little nervous to start it because I was afraid that it wouldn't live up to it's reputation. Thankfully, that didn't prove to be the case. This book was beautiful, devastatingly so.Ms. Sepetys does a wonderful job of shedding light on the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff, a maritime disaster that claimed more than 9,000 lives and remains an overlooked part of history. Admittedly, I had never heard [...]

    10. “How foolish to believe we are more powerful than the sea or the sky.” ALL THE FEELS! Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys nurtured my body, it fed my soul, it made my heart soar. I also had a wave of despair and a feeling of intense longing when the book ended, coming to the unfortunate and fortunate realization that I would be experiencing a book hangover. (A phenomenon that occurs when you read something so good, you think you will never find something quite as good again)This book was by no m [...]

    11. ⸨ Your daughter, your sister. She is salt to the sea, ⸩ This was my first book by Ruta Sepetys, and it won't be last. I have already bought "Between Shades of Gray", and "Out of the Easy" is on it's way. :DI am obsessed with this remarkable author. She is so inspiring, and down to earth. Most importantly, she is a powerful storyteller. I loved the way this book is written. There are 4 POVs and each chapter is about 2-4 pages long. There are no unnecessary details, which i highly appreciate. [...]

    12. YOWZA SHE DOES IT AGAINIn both of Ruta's books, somehow my tears get saved until the moment I close the book, then everything I just read collapses down on me and it gets me choked up. I really really liked Between Shades of Grey because of its ending, and I was so excited to hear about Ruta's second book following non-German (mostly) WWII. I've mentioned before that i'm not a fan of books that are told by a handful of characters. I think they're hard to get into, can be confusing, and none of t [...]

    13. “War is catastrophe. It breaks families in irretrievable pieces. But those who are gone are not necessarily lost.”A Pole with a past. A Prussian with a mission. A Lithuanian with a secret. A German with issues. One ship. Three torpedoes.Nearly one year ago I read the highly acclaimed novel Between Shades of Grey. Now Ruta Sepetys is back, with another historical telling set against the backdrop of World War II.Sepety's novels often talk of dark and dangerous times, with a light and comfortin [...]

    14. I am an emotional wreck! This is such a wonderfully evocative and poignant recount of such a dark period in human history. Sepetys has brought history to life in amongst these pages filled with pain, grief and heartbreak of the worst possible kind - that caused by other human beings.This split narration follows the lives of four young individuals and their alternate opinions and stances in the war. The year is 1945 and the civilians of Germany are fleeing for safety as Russia attacks and it appe [...]

    15. SPECTACULAR!!5 giant, miraculous stars!!Oh God what a beautiful masterpiece this is! I honestly don't know what to say about this for the fact that the book is so heart-wrenching and thoughtful. Throughout this one the truth reveals to oneself about what constructive consequences the war between the Russians and the Germans during World War II have caused and the tragic deaths of thousands of innocent victims, which is indeed too emotional yet truthful to bear. What a phenomenal work you have pu [...]

    16. This book crushed me! Despite having read and learned so much about this terrible time in our world history, I am amazed that there are constantly new aspects of it I didn't know before and which continue to stun and sadden me. Salt to the Sea, in particular touched me, because it mirrored, to a degree, what my grandmother and her family experienced. My grandmother, her little brother, her widowed mother and aunt had to flee from Silesia to escape the Russians, which is similar to why the charac [...]

    17. Well that was enlightening, emotional, and a page-turning read!SALT TO THE SEA by RUTA SEPETYS is a Historical Fiction novel that is engaging, heart-wrenching, and a powerful read with an extremely interesting plot that grabbed my attention from the very first chapter. This was definitely another page-turner and extremely hard to put down.The last few books that I have read lately have either had an embossed dustjacket or cover and this is no exception as this one has a partially embossed dustja [...]

    18. “On September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland from the west. On September 17, 1939, Russia invaded Poland from the east. I remembered these dates. Two warning nations gripped Poland like girls fighting over a doll. One held the leg, the other the arm. They pulled so hard that one day, the head popped off. The Nazis sent our people to ghettos and concentration camps. The Soviets sent our people to gulags and Siberia. I was nine years old when it started. People changed. Faces shrived and sunk, [...]

    19. ::: FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED ::: 4.5 starsWOAH. What an incredible book! It was vastly different than the usual books I read. I'm usually a pretty hardcore Romance genre reader, but this story swept me away! I read it in a single day and had tears in my eyes in the end (letters always make me cry) and I keep thinking about this story in the back of my mind. I just can't let go.Whenever I'm going through a major book hangover, I like to try and switch up the genre I read. Given my intense love of [...]

    20. ""A momentary quiet followed, leaving nothing but the sound of the wind and waves. We bobbed upand back, up and back, waves lapping and curling, the sound of crying filtering through the dark."" Intense and Glorified writing and character.Exceptional narration.My favorite character- Shoemaker"“I wept because i had no shoes, until i met a man who had no feet.” "That is class of writing when reader thinks whether the story is fiction or reality, Just like story line of movie- THE WORDS." Histo [...]

    21. 3.75⭐️When the survivors are gone, we must not let the truth disappear with them. Please give them a voice.Author's endnote.The ending left me with tears in my eyes and chills on my back. I felt a genuine cold chill down my spine while reading the very last few chapters.This was a heart-breaking WWII novel about a lesser-known maritime tragedy, the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff, a German ship filled mostly with civilians trying to escape the advancing Russian (or Red) Army. The novel fo [...]

    22. I don't read books in a day but THIS ONE GOT READ IN ONE DAY. IN HOUUUURRRRS. If you have any reservations about the multiple perspectives, trust me when I say that you're reading a book in the hands of a very capable author and you won't feel disoriented AT ALL.

    23. I really enjoyed Ruta Sepetys' new book SALT TO THE SEA. I liked the format of short chapters with alternating protagonists, and I liked that each character had a secret to reveal, but most of all, I enjoyed learning about an event of historic significance.The catastrophic torpedo strike on the Wilhelm Gustloff on January 30, 1945 was news to me as well as the OMGOSH horrific loss of an estimated 9,000 people, most of them children, more than the Titanic and Lusitania combined. With a ship capac [...]

    24. Sepetys does it again with this "sequel" to Between Shades of Grey. Another heart-wrenching tale of WWII involving not very well known Russian/German conflicts and the innocent people affected by them.If you are a fan of historical fiction, WWII fiction, or using up a couple boxes of tissues because of a good tear-jerker, this is a great book to check out.

    25. His face changed. Sincerity and sadness erased the bravado. "That kid. She's a warrior.""Yes, but fighting who?"He looked at me, surprised. "Everyone. Everything. Fighting fate."Well, this was just devastating.I had never heard of the Wilhelm Gustloff before I read this book. I had a morbid fascination with the Titanic as a child, but I guess it never occurred to me to research other maritime tragedies? Anyway, the Wilhelm Gustloff is like the Titanic disaster on steroids: Three Russian torpedoe [...]
