Review: SALT TO THE SEA by Ruta Sepetys


Rating: 1.5/5 stars 

DNF at 44%. 

Ruta Sepetys has a real talent when it comes to writing historical fiction, and this book is no different. It is well written and well researched. The reason I DNFed it though is that it is very sad, and I have realized I can’t do sad World War 2 fiction anymore. I just have no desire to continue reading it. I need something happy. But if you enjoy authentic WW2 stories then I would definitely recommend this novel, and I would also recommend checking out other books by Ruta Sepetys as well, especially The Fountains of Silence, which is just as well written and researched, but it’s happier and romantic instead.
