Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
I just finished Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens this past weekend.
I first heard about Where the Crawdads Sing through Reese Witherspoon’s book club, Hello Sunshine and I couldn’t resist starting it myself.

This books got me. In a similar way that the Great Alone by Kristin Hannah did, even though the stories are quite different. In both, you really fall into the setting and the world of the main character. You want them to be okay, you are not sure they are going to be, and you want things to end well for them.
Where the Crawdads Sing is about the marsh in North Carolina and the girl who grew up there alone. This book is a beautiful story about humans, nature, and survival. This book is quite emotional but worth the journey.
Where the Crawdads Sing will draw you in the world of the characters, keep you guessing about what really happened to a local hero, and have you empathizing with the Marsh Girl and what she has been through.
The marsh itself is a character of its own and the author does an amazing job describing not only the landscape but the animals that live there. You will almost feel like you are actually there, in the marsh, with the “Marsh Girl” and the other characters of the novel.
Written by Delia Owens, this is a must read and could end up being my #1 fiction pick for 2018. Where the Crawdads Sing is her first novel and I am looking forward to reading more of her books in the future. She writes beautifully and is able to tell quite the story with engaging characters that make you never want to put the book down.
