Snow Kissed by Laura Florand

This is one of the best marriage-in-crisis stories I've read. Heartbreaking and beautiful, sensual and passionate! It brought out so many emotions in just 122 pages!


Saving Francesca   The Piper's Son
Saving Francesca & The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta
I adored Saving Francesca but I absolutely LOVED the sequel, The Piper's Son. Melina Marchetta can have you laughing your head off one minute and crying the next, but she always makes you FEEL!  She is just a phenomenal writer!


These were just a few of my favorites that I'm thankful I've read. What about you, what books are you thankful to have read?

  9. Marchetta is my top favourite author, I am so happy that I found her books. But these days I've been obsessing over the books in the Starbound series by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner, I can't take them out of my head. And before that there was the Unwind series which blew my mind - they are so damn great, in a creepy kind of way.
    I also agree with Mary Preston, I am simply grateful for discovering YA.

    Wonder: For being so profound
