Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers I thought this would not be my type of read. It is historical christian fiction (not a huge fan of either) about the life of a woman who was sold as a child into prostitution and then later about the man who feel in love with her. This was just a beautiful and breathtaking read. Oh boy did it my make my heart hurt. I cried pretty much the whole way through this story. Sarah (also know as Angel) is a character you become very quickly emotionally invested in and Michael is pretty much the perfect man. I don't think you will find a character more forgiving and loving then him. Overall, this book deals with some intense issues but is worth the emotional journey it takes you on. Rating: 4/5.
Sweethearts by Sara Zarr - Such a gorgeous story. It was real, honest and a little heartbreaking. Again some tears. Zarr's writing is seamless. So simple yet powerful. The characters Jenna and Cameron are well rounded and fully alive. You really can empathise with them. And the plot is realistic. Overall a brilliant story. Rating: 4.5/5
The Ex Games by Jennifer Echols -
