I'm always looking for a story that makes me feel. Most of All You kept a hold on my heart. It's definitely a book I recommend. http://fangirlmomentsandmytwocents.blogspot.com/2017/10/most-of-all-you-by-mia-s... #favoritereads #contemporaryromance

What Happened | Hillary Rodham Clinton

I enjoyed seeing more of her without a guard up. I understand why she has always had to shield herself, but it's nice seeing more of her. She encouraged everyone to follow their dreams and not give up on the government but to get involved. Even though it covers a time that left me depressed, it's an uplifting story. Seeing how smart she is and knowledgeable on issues does make it feel even more insane that she didn't win.

This book is different from most of the ones I've read that have vampires and werewolves. The Others aren't traditional versions of these creatures. There are all different forms of Others also. Some are season spirits and forms of nature and weather. It's really cool, very creative. I'll definitely be continuing this series.

Lilac Girls: A Novel | Martha Hall Kelly

This is a heartbreaking, disturbing, inspirational story. Some parts in the camp are almost too much to bare reading, especially since they're true. The parts with Caroline helped to balance some of that out. I was very emotional for the entire read for sure. The way the author tells from each of the three leads POV is great.

This book really spoke to me. It's a great book for the overweight and the slim. It tells a lot from a POV of how hard some situations are when you're bigger, not just the emotional aspect but actually, some things like chair arms can be hell. She lays so many things out there that most of us tend to stay quiet about. It's powerful speaking the truth.

The Good Daughter: A Novel | Karin Slaughter

This book is about so much. It's a mystery on top of a mystery. It's about family relationships. There are terrible tragedies. It has tons of heartstring pullers. The Good Daughter kept me 100% interested for the entire read. I definitely recommend it.

The writing is beautiful and easily brought the emotions out. The plot is rich with historical events and in-depth multilayered characters. I feel like I actually know these people and love them. I'm a little sad that my time with them ended. http://fangirlmomentsandmytwocents.blogspot.com/2017/10/the-rules-of-magic-by-al... #magicalrealism #familysaga #booksilove #octoberreads

KathyWheeler I attempted to buy this when I was at Barnes & Noble tonight. There inventory system said they had it in the store but no one could find it. 2y
ToniFGMAMTC Oh no @KathyWheeler I hope you can find it soon 2y
KathyWheeler @ToniFGMAMTC Me too! I do know the difference between “there” and “their” btw, and I would go edit my last comment, but since this new iOS update, when you hit edit, the keyboard covers the section I‘m trying to edit so I can‘t see it! 2y

I easily understood their actions and feelings. I love these characters and how they don't play romance games. They help to bring each other around to a better place. It's entertaining, but it also leaves you thinking. It's not a book that you can just finish and forget. The occasional drawings are a bonus that really adds to the storyline.

The lead is really likable. He has cool powers, but he isn't all full of himself because of it. He knows he isn't the toughest thing around. I understood the world easily. The details were woven into the storyline well. I didn't feel lost or bored by too much background info. I was interested in the mystery. It wasn't too easy to solve, and the plot made sense. I'll definitely be continuing this series.

KathyWheeler James Marsters reads the audio versions of these and he is fabulous. 2y

I really loved the characters. They're such individuals. They don't really fit into any stereotypes for teens. It made them feel more realistic. I really liked being inside their heads and witnessing them growing up as issues happened. ♥︎

The Dead Zone | Stephen King

I loved this story. The lead is wonderful. The storyline is great. The Dead Zone is so bittersweet and so amazing, definitely one of my favorites by SK.

KathyWheeler This book was the one that made me realize King was about more than horror. 2y
ToniFGMAMTC Yes @KathyWheeler he really does so many greats 2y
KathyWheeler @ToniFGMAMTC My other favorite, 11/22/63, is also not horror, and neither, really is The Dark Tower Series or the Mr. Mercedes books, so it frustrates me a lot when critics write about him as if that's all he writes. 2y

ToniFGMAMTC @KathyWheeler I've read & love all of those. I'm not finished with The Dark Tower series yet though. I'm on the 5th book I think. My favorite by him may be On Writing which is nonfiction. I love so many of his that aren't horror. 2y
KathyWheeler @ToniFGMAMTC On Writing is one of the best books I've ever read about writing. I also liked Danse Macabre, which is a collection of essays about horror movies, stories, and novels. Quite awhile back, I asked on his website forum if there were any plans to update it. The answer was no. 😞 2y
ToniFGMAMTC @KathyWheeler I need to check that out. It wasn't even on my tbr thanks 😊 2y
KathyWheeler @ToniFGMAMTC it's an older book but I so enjoyed it. 2y

This book! My mind is blown. I was enraptured in the genius of it. I feel like I need to reread it a few times just to let everything sink in. It's a very scientific factual approach to the history of life.

Tjackson Reading Homo Deus, his follow up book. It will blow your mind, as well! (edited) 2y
ToniFGMAMTC @Tjackson I'm planning to for sure 2y

I like how the characters don't just hook up, and then everything works out perfectly. They're mature about the facts and know their actions have consequences. The storyline feels realistic. I understood and felt all the emotions with Gavin and Noah. Illegal Contact has a great storyline and plenty of sexy. http://fangirlmomentsandmytwocents.blogspot.com/2017/08/illegal-contact-by-santi... #SantinoHassell #TheBarons #IllegalContact

I that Ellie isn't the quiet little virgin and Logan isn't the bad boy. Over the years, a romance becomes undeniable. It's sweet, but it's also realistic in the fact that they can't just lah-di-dah off into the sunset. There are life decisions to be sorted first. It's a mix of fairy tale and real life. http://fangirlmomentsandmytwocents.blogspot.com/2017/08/royally-endowed-by-emma-... #EmmaChase #RoyallyEndowed

#CONCOURSE #SantinoHassell
Valdrin is from Albanian descent and working multiple jobs to stay afloat. Ashton is from old money and became famous for a bit of 'acting out' and social media. These guys are just perfect compliments to each other, almost opposites in many areas but similar in heart. I completely fell into the life they were leading and couldn't put the book down. I love when I have a reading experience like that.

I love this author's writing style. I read wonderful stories all the time, but the actual craft of writing from this author continues to blow me away. Every emotion hit me hard, and I had to ride it out fully. It's beyond beautiful. It broke my heart at times and overfilled it others. Exquisite. Moving. Defining. #SuanneLaqueur #TheManILove http://fangirlmomentsandmytwocents.blogspot.com/2017/04/the-man-i-love-by-suanne...

#TheHateUGive #diversity #bestof2017 #mustread #AngieThomas #poc #woc #favorites #ya This book is so relevant. It's an honest look into situations that need attention. I didn't feel any hate coming through, but the struggles and love are evident. It moved me emotionally over and over. The Hate U Give is a must read for teens and adults. It highlights important issues without compounding the negativity and definitely inspires change and empathy.

I LOVE this book. It has so much inside it. It is so original with the main couple, but them hooking up isn't the be all end all. There's a whole world of major issues going on around everyone. The love is deep and easy to feel, but the action and mythology grabbed me also. This story pulled the emotions from me. I was angry, sad, happy and all over the place with feelings. ♥︎ #wolfsong #tjklune https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1889547172

This book is full of beauty and tragedy. It follows two people in love and the conflict and consequences of everyone's choices. It portrays the best of worst sides of human nature. Mostly it focuses on the lengths people will go to help each other. My heart hasn't felt so much in awhile. From Sand and Ash is an epic love story that will restore your faith in humanity. #AmyHarmon #FromSandAndAsh https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1831839453

This is definitely my favorite read of 2016. I loved everything about it. I had many smiles and tears along the way. My heart squeezed and soared.
I'm still so deep in the feels that I can't get it out of my head. This author truly has a gift. There are a lot of good books out there, but finding something that touches me on this level is a rare unicorn.

If you read HIM and US (amazing must reads), you'll be happy to learn that Jamie and Wesley are in this book. They aren't the leads, but it's a treat to see more of them.
Jess and Blake are so easy to love. They're decent people with big hearts and relatable actions. Both are great friend material, and they definitely fit as a couple. #GoodBoy #SarinaBowen #ElleKennedy
