Some really, really good books!

Most of you know that I don't read anywhere near as much as I'd like to. The TBR (to-be-read) list on my Kindle has so many books, I'm not sure I could even get through them in this lifetime. As a writer, it's sometimes hard to find that balance between reading books that make you FEEL something, and not reading at all because you're focusing on your own writing.

I love reading stories that resonate with me... stories that make me feel like they could really happen off the pages... stories with heart.  Which is funny (or not) because that's exactly the kind of stories I like to write. So what does that really say about me?!  LOL

Three very distinct books stand out that I've read lately, and I just want to post about them here because I feel like they deserve that little extra bout of recognition. I want everyone to read these stories. I want everyone to fall in love the way I did and get lost in the pages of books that make you feel, give you hope, make you root for couples, make you laugh and make you cry. I know that we all have different styles, different tastes and preferences... these three are all examples of mine.

I hope you'll read them and love them as much as I did. At the very least, download the SAMPLE on Amazon and see if you're hooked. That's what I always do. If i'm not invested by the end of the sample, then I move on. Brutal, I know. lol  If you click on the book cover, or the title of the book, you'll be directed to the Amazon page.

Alright- here goes.  :)

I LITERALLY just finished Fisher's Light by Tara Sivec. It is crappy of me to tell you about this book because you can't even buy it yet, but it will be out soon. Like soon, soon, so if you have a Goodreads account, or you write down books you want to buy, I implore you to add this one to the list. I was hooked in the prologue and the story never stopped drawing me in. It was beautifully written, emotionally gut wrenching, and everything the characters went through- I was right there with them. I was all in from the second I started. Hell, it's done and i'm STILL all in.  ALL. IN.  This is a second chance love story. It's beautiful. It's sad. It's a must, freaking, read. I'm actually having a book hangover right now and I don't even want to read anything else because i'd like to just enjoy basking in this story for a little while longer..... I loved it that much.  :) 

Kaleidoscope Hearts by Claire Contreras is another second chance love story that was beautifully written. It was such a heartwarming story about love, loss, and relationships on all levels (family, friends, etc). I adored this book and only wish that the hearts she created were a real thing that I could buy and put in my office.  :) 

The Pact by Karina Halle was a friends to lovers book that just sucked me in. The writing in this book gripped at my heart with it's simplistic emotions. I connected with the words that were said and the way they were said. I loved so much about this story- it made me FEEEEEL- right in my guts. Gotta love that.

Like I said, go download the sample and read all these amazing stories!  I hope you love them as much as I have!  :)
