    One thought on “Blue”

    1. This lyrically written, beautiful story of three emotionally broken yet connected women begins in present day, illustrating the current struggles each faces to simply hold it together and get through each day. The tale then slowly unravels—as these women’s lives unravel—to reveal the mystery in their past that connects them.We meet Izabel—a young woman who arrived on Shaw Island in Washington State without any memory of her life up to that point. Taken in and cared for by the nuns, she t [...]

    2. Very entertaining book about three women whose lives are intertwined. Don't be put off by the part that seems 'fantasy', it's all explained in the end. One of my Facebook friends is the author and I think she did a fine job!

    3. Finished with my first book from Netgalley! I can't recall what brought me to select this book, but nevertheless, I picked it up Wednesday afternoon and really allowed the story to envelope me. It was a quick read and, by Thursday afternoon, I came to the last page.In the first part of the book, I was quite confused about the connection between the three storylines. Each chapter came from one of the three main characters: Daisy, Monica, and Izabel. But, unlike a story such as A Song of Ice and F [...]

    4. I received a copy of Blue from its publishers, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.I was attracted to Blue by its bright cover art which really stood out amongst the other books on offer. Hughlett uses colour extensively throughout her prose especially on Daisy's fantastical island and also more subtly in Monica's Seattle and on Izabel's Orcas Island. We are introduced to these three very different women via their individual chapters and I initially found it difficult to keep track o [...]

    5. Loved, loved, loved the premise of the story and I fell in love with the sub-story of one of the three characters - so in my zeal to not have her story interrupted by the other two's, in Part Two I decided to read Blue as a modified "choose your own ending" book by only reading Monica's chapters. Of course, my plan was to go back to read the others after I knew what was going to happen to Mo. BAD IDEA I realized about 20 pages in. The good news is that I got to read Monica's chapters twice since [...]

    6. I received a free copy of this wonderful novel theough netgalley.Three women live their lives, and are somehow connected in a mysterious way. During the story there are more and more pieces of the puzzle that fit together, until in the end the whole seablue picture is complete. At that point, all three women have shown some wonderful strength, deep emotions, and a completeness when they dare to fit together.

    7. I finished this last night and want to read it again now that I know the ending! I knew the three main characters had to have some kind of connection, but it took me a long time to figure out and, even then, Daisy remained an mystery.I received a free review copy of this book from NetGalley.

    8. This was a good read. There were a couple of plot holes that bothered me, but the story definitely kept me engaged and guessing. I received a free copy of this book to read through NetGalley.

    9. I have to confess: I wanted to linger over the beautiful prose in BLUE. But I couldn't help myself and read the book through on a glorious rainy Sunday.The anticipation of "what's next" compelled me to turn pages as I entered all the shades of blue in Daisy's surreal world. The hints of secrets strewn on the floor of Monica's shoe closet invited me to ponder my own hidden secrets. And I wanted to be a part of the magic in Izabel's dance as she begins to awaken.Women are complex creatures, and Hu [...]

    10. Ok, I have to admit it, I wrote this book. Of course, I love it. Does it have flaws? Yes. After all, it's about human beings and we're all flawed, right? Does it come from the heart? Absolutely. The story continues to surprise me even after writing and editing and re-reading and editing some more There are hidden meanings that I didn't intend to hide. There are pieces of my life that I forgot were mine. Daisy became a character long before I remembered that was my mother's given name. (My mother [...]

    11. Three women and their interconnecting stories give this novel a wonderful feeling of hope . It's an emotional read and just a tiny bit confusing in the beginning but as the book progresses you see how the three stories are finally connected. This is a book you'll want to re-read to catch the little clues and gems you might miss as you race to see what's happening next with your favorite woman's story.

    12. Part surrealism, part fantasy, part drama. They way it is written, moving around the POV of the different players makes it an entertaining story as they converge. I noticed how the way I felt about two of the characters, specially one of them, transitioned as more of its story was revealed. It kept me interested on it, an out of the ordinary short book than can be read in a couple of days.

    13. I was very confused at first but everything started coming together near the end. Good book! I received a free review copy of the book via NetGalley.
