1. Beyond Hope’s Valley by Tricia Goyer – After reviewing Beside Still Waters, the second novel in the A Big Sky Novel trilogy, I knew I’d just have to read the third book, Beyond Hope’s Valley. I had it pre-ordered from the Book Depository last year (I could barely wait to discover who the main character would end up with) and it came in the mail just before its release date. I enjoyed Beyond Hope’s Valley even more than Beside Still Waters. There are few books in the bonnet fiction genre that I enjoy and these two A Big Sky Novels are definitely in the “enjoy” category. The stories are absolutely fantastic and fun to read.
2. Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout – This book caught my fancy from the beginning. Combine the perfect humor and cool action together, you get one mind-blowing, perfect story.
3. It All Started With An Apple by Tainted Rain – This is the only story that has manage to get me laughing out loud at nearly every chapter. I don’t usually laugh out loud when I’m sitting in front of the computer but the funny scenes were just too much for me to handle. Of course, there is the heartbreaking chapters near the end as well. If you ever visit Wattpad (yep, you can read this story for free), I suggest checking this story out. And don’t worry, it’s content is very much clean.
4. The Maid of Fairbourne Hall by Julie Klassen – This one is an interesting story about a well-to-do girl who goes incognito as a maid to escape an unwanted arranged marriage. Problem is, she starts working as a maid in the house of a former flame. I enjoyed the mystery, intrigue, and humor.
5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – Okay, I admit I have not yet finished this book but I can definitely see why this book and its film is sensational. I’ve been wanting to read THG and was given the opportunity when my cousin loan it to me. I absolutely will be reading the other two books in this trilogy.
