I write YA novels - paranormal, suspense, romance, etc. I love to read the same!

Where We Fell

Where We Fell - Amber L.  Johnson This book was amazing! I read with a lump in my throat through most of it, on the verge of tears - sometimes sad, sometimes happy, and sometimes somewhere in the middle.

Oliver is a normal teenager when he gets a medical diagnosis that changes everything. He realizes he could die, but along comes Hannah, who's lively and fun, and she challenges him to focus on living every moment to the fullest. I really enjoyed Hannah a lot, and found their relationship to be equally sweet and fun, standing up under the specter of Oliver's illness and actually flourishing there.

I highly recommend this short story. The characters are well-developed, the plot is engaging. I couldn't put it down and read it at one sitting. I look forward to reading more from this author!

I was provided with an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Force of Nature

Force of Nature - Sydney Logan A heartwarming short story that's the perfect little something to read before bed. Sydney Logan fans will enjoy her trademark sweet and swoony blend of romance.
Lessons Learned - Sydney Logan I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was heartwarming, and actually did put a lump in my throat toward the end, and that doesn't happen often. Sarah is broken when she comes to Sycamore Falls after going through a traumatic event. She wasn't looking for love. She just wanted to live a quiet life and heal after what she went through. When she met Lucas, however, all bets were off! The guy was just so patient and kind - just what Sarah needed. Some have said that he's almost too perfect, and maybe that's true. If you need a bad boy in your romance, this story's not for you. He was certainly more patient than I would have been in the situation. There were times I wanted to shake Sarah and scream, "WOULD YOU JUST TELL HIM ALREADY!"


However, Lucas was exactly what Sarah needed. She was so hurt, so damaged by her past, that she needed a guy who could be patient with her as she worked up the courage to share that part of herself. If Lucas had pushed her, she couldn't have handled it. Which is why these two were so perfect for each other.

Sarah's relationship with Matt was one of my favorite parts of the book. I can't say too much without giving away spoilers, but he allows Sarah to be strong again, which is an incredible gift. And it was a scene with the two of them that actually brought the tears to my eyes.

Overall, a great debut from Ms. Logan, and I look forward to reading more. If you're looking for a sweet and romantic love story, you can't go wrong here. :-)

Insurgent - Veronica Roth Very exciting - enjoyed it a lot!
