"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)

Teaser Tuesday


Gerard's:

A heavy door slams outside, making us both jump.  She's as nervous as I am, I realize. 
From page 6 of He Said, She Said by Erin Kelly.


My heart is a yo-yo, whizzing up and down, and he's the one pulling the string.  Only I didn't ever know it could go this high.
From page 51 of Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith.
 
Karen's:



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!

"He Said/She Said" by Erin Kelly

In He Said/She Said by Erin Kelly, Kit and Laura want to see an eclipse but Laura sees something else too:  a man and a woman who is being attacked.  Months later, the woman shows up on Laura's doorstep.  Soon Laura questions if what she saw was really that bad.  There is a lot of twists and turns in this book.  The build up to the last part is so good!  You really do not know how it will play out.
