    In Georgina Fernweh's family, it's just accepted: the Fernweh women have magic. Every female in Georgina's family has received their magic by age of eighteen. Georgina is almost eighteen, though, and she's shown no sign of getting her magic. Her twin sister, Mary, has floated since bir...

    (My amazing friend Madalyn, at Novel Ink, gave this to me as a birthday gift!) ? ?Of all the stories about my family, the Fernweh women and the island of By-the-Sea, there are two that no one will ever forget. One is the story of how my sister, Mary, and I were born. And th...

    'I knew that he would use that gun, because that is what small, scared men did: they used things more powerful than themselves to make up the difference. They hid behind weapons of mass destruction: big guns and bigger bombs.'* SO THIS BOOK KINDA BROKE ME AND MAYBE ALSO HEALED ME A ...

    I personally had no intention of picking up Summer of Salt sooner. In my case, I really want to read it but the instant I discovered the plot would touch rape, I know I?m not in the best place to delve it. Although, impulses happen when you?re bored. Summer of Salt is my first ...

    Summer of Salt is an incredibly atmospheric book that makes you feel like you're right there with the characters! ?On the island of By-the-Sea you could always smell two things: salt and magic.? What had initially convinced me to pick this book up was the f/f romance. I'm n...

    Unlike Katrina Leno?s previous books, the magical realism in Summer of Salt isn?t subtle. The magic in this book is evident right from the beginning and plays a central role in the story. What isn?t evident from the beginning, however, is the important and powerful message this b...

    I always expect a beautifully magical time when it comes to a Leno book. ?And actually excuse me while I sit here all starry-eyed, but this was EXACTLY as beautiful and magical as I hoped. (Although I think my favourite Leno book is always going to be Everything All at Once because ...

    "She was born for the smell of water, for the way it sank into your bones, stained your skin, dyed your blood a deep, salty blue." This novel reads like a force of nature. The lyrical prose combined with the love for nature makes it very descriptive and surrealistic. I think th...

    My second round with Summer of Salt and I'm sitting here trying very hard not to cry. This book is gorgeous. I need a movie. I need to reread it again already. I just want to live in this story where the bad guys get what they deserve and everything is just a little more magical ...

    This is like Practical Magic BUT also it's own story. Reading this book had the same exact vibes as Practical Magic when thinking about the magic and family. I loved the dynamic there. The story was amazing. I loved how Katrina Leno navigated a sexual assault story within this magic...

    Summer of Salt is very unorthodox, and in a good way. Containing elements of magic and deep family ties, its characters can do any variety of amazing things at will - except for Georgie, our non-magic storyteller. Oftentimes she acts like there's nothing special about her because of he...

    My heart has the deep overwhelming desire to be held close in a dimly lit room, covered in blankets while rain is softly falling outside. I picked up Summer of Salt for an enchanting blend of the whimsy and the queer?in both senses of the word?and left with so much more, and for th...

    not at all what i expected, but twice as lovely i'm going to be frank with you, going into this i expected magical realism and rape. that's the two things i had heard about this book. so i kept putting off reading it. and yes, this book does have both of those things but it has a...

    this book is the embodiment of waves crashing into each other. you know when you?re standing on a beach, and you?re watching a wave make its way to you, and you think to yourself: ?i think i should stand here and let myself be taken by the sea.? and that?s exactly what happen...

    I'm so so thankful to my bookish friends who told me I had to read this book, you weren't wrong. This was a beautiful book with sexual fluidity and representation in it is often lacking in magical realism/witchy reads. "I think a person can be home, sometimes, just as much as a pla...

    3,5* - Awesome atmosphere, quite a unique premise and a VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE. (Even though the sentence "Men are always killing things" is definitely too much for me. Please stop hating on man for the sake of feminism, that's not really what it's about) BUT it was way too short...

    "Are you happy at all?" she asked tentatively. "Of course I'm happy. Why wouldn't I be happy?" "Oh, I don't know. Sometimes you just find reasons not to be." 4 stars for a beautifully written and enchanting book. Summer of Salt is the magical, whimsical story of falling in love...
