"Dark Breaks the Dawn" by Sara B. Larson

In Dark Breaks the Dawn by Sara B. Larson, Princess Evelayn can now have access to her full power!  Her mother is at the war front fighting against the Dark Power!  When her mom is killed, it is up to Evelayn to somehow gain the peace between Dark and Dawn.  WOW!

This book is so good!  The pace is perfect and it all leads to an incredible ending that I did not see coming at all!  I need book 2 soon!  This is a "must read" for fantasy lovers.

Teaser Tuesday


Gerard's:
Evelayn dropped to her knees, tears spilling out onto her cheeks.  And then she crumpled forward, curling into a ball on the grass, the hot sunshine pouring over her as she shuddered with sobs.
From page 79 of Dark Breaks the Dawn by Sara B. Larson.

"Mista!  You hear me talkin' at you?"  The midwife turns mean now. 
From page 17 of Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate.

Karen's:

"I mean, you're the one who'll be missing out.  Who turns down twenty million dollars?"

From page 90 of Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith.

So she took a deep breath and let herself believe she was the fierce and powerful girl everyone thought she was.  And she stared right back.
From page 19 of Roar by Cora Carmack.
 
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker.   Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just pick two sentences from the book you are reading.  Happy Reading!

"Roar" by Cora Carmack

Roar by Cora Carmack is about Aurora, a princess who has a secret.  She has always tried to make her mother proud of her, but now she must marry a man she does not love to honor her mom's wishes.  The night before the wedding, Aurora bolts and goes out on her own!

WOW!  This book was so good, better than I expected!  I was into it from page 1.  Aurora is a great character and the story line kept my interest all the way!  This is the author's first YA book and I want book 2 soon!  This is my new book of the month!

"Before We Were Yours" by Lisa Wingate

In Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate, Avery Stafford has it all.  She was born into a wealthy family, a very good career and soon to be married to a handsome man.  A chance encounter with a member of her family cast light on a hidden secret that if gets out, her family name could be ruined!

I thought this book was very good.  I was into it from page 1 and loved the characters.  It is based on a true story.  If you get a chance, read this one--so far it is my book of the month!

"The Bright Hour" by Nina Riggs

The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs is her true story.  She was already going through a rough time with her mom who has Cancer and does not have much time left.  Then one day she gets a call from her doctor that no one ever wants to get and hears that they found a spot on her breast.  It is hard to say I enjoyed this book because it's very sad.  I did enjoy her interactions with her family though which makes up most of this book.  Rest in peace, Nina, and God bless your husband and children.  (Gerard's review, 5 stars)
