Anything, and I mean absolutely anything written by Jamie McGuire. My personal favorite is Sweet Nothing. – It is enough to break any man: watching what could have been my future slip away before it was ever in my grasp.The possibility of losing someone I loved, before she was even mine, is something I never would have imagined. Certainly nothing I’d ever wish on anyone. I go to her every day and wait. Wait for the impossible, for a sign, for her to look at me … hoping sinners are granted miracles, too.

Just one glimpse of him was all it took. In the next lane, at a stop light, was the man I would fall in love with and marry. People talk about the kind of love that takes time–love you fall in to. We were more like a crash and burn, and when our lives intertwined I would never be the same. He was the man I would cherish the rest of my life, who would father my children. In an instant our life together began, and in an instant it would end. The late nights; the excuses; the lies. And in the blink of an eye, it was like we never were. (From Amazon)


The Weight of Silence, by Heather Gudenkauf- It happens quietly one August morning. As dawn’s shimmering light drenches the humid Iowa air, two families awaken to find their little girls have gone missing in the night. (Pulled from Amazon)

I have loved every single book Heather has wrote. She puts such strong emotions into her writing, that once I finish her books I have to take a break for a few days, to heal, so to speak. Honestly, You could read anything by her, and walk away impressed.

Ugly Love- Colleen Hoover. Tate and Miles- She’s a nurse, he’s a pilot and her brothers best-friend, and neighbor. With a gut wrenching secret. They come to an agreement. Friends with benefits. No one falls in love.

I love Colleen Hoover, I own every single one of her books, and have her new one pre-ordered. Ugly love is my favorite. Maybe because it was the first of her books that I have read.

 The Mara Dyer Trilogy: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer; The Evolution of Mara Dyer; The Retribution of Mara Dyer-Michelle Hodkin. Mara cannot remember anything about the night her friends died. All she knows is what she’s been told: they went to an abandoned asylum, the building collapsed, and only Mara survived. (pulled from Amazon)

This whole series is incredible. I remember the feeling I had after I finished the first book. I was in Awe. It was so creepy/surprising I couldn’t believe it. To this day it is one of my very favorite series. I Have heard a rumor that there is going to be a sequel, written from another person’s point of view. If that’s the case. I am so excited.

The Forever Trilogy. Grey Eyes, Brown Eyes, Angel Eyes. Quinteria Ramey and Brandon Alston- 15 year old Anastasia Adams has spent her entire life on run. She and her mother have never spent more than 18 months in any one location, often times leaving with just the clothes on their backs. Despite the havoc that this is wreaking on Ana’s social and academic life, her mother offers no explanation as to why it is they’re constantly moving, or even what it is they’re running from. But that all changes one night in the woods of Pelion, SC–the night the terror catches up with them. (pulled from Amazon)  

This is an e-book series that I came across in 2011. It was self published and the first book was free. I was hooked within the first chapter. By the time I finished the 3rd book, I had experienced happiness, anger, love, tears, and than happiness again. It might not appeal to a lot of readers. But I love it.

The Entire Shatter Me Series, Shatter Me, Unravel Me, Ignite Me- Tahereh Mafi- No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own. After a lifetime without freedom, she’s finally discovering a strength to fight for herself—and for a future with the one boy she thought she’d lost forever.

The Shatter Me series, which New York Times bestselling author Ransom Riggs called “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love,” is perfect for fans who crave action-packed novels like Veronica Roth’s Divergent, Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games, and Marie Lu’s Legend. (From Amazon)

 I had “Shatter Me” sitting on my bookshelf for a little over 3 years, I finally picked it up this month. (May) and quickly discovered a love for it, and within a week I finished the entire series. It was simply amazing, and a book series I could recommend to anyone.
