THE BRONZE HORSEMAN by Paullina Simons
See my review HERE.
UGLY LOVE by Colleen Hoover
Ugly Love broke my heart and put it back together again... in the best way possible. The story of Miles and Tate is one that I was completely invested in. My heart hurt for these two people. There is so much hurt and loss in Ugly Love but also so much hope. This one is unforgettable.
THE LUX SERIES by Jennifer L. Armentrout
OUTLANDER by Diana Gabaldon
THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah
The Nightingale is the newest addition to my list of 5 Star favorites. Kristin Hannah has long been a favorite author and The Nightingale did not disappoint. This story is intense and heartbreaking and was often difficult to read because of the emotional toll it was taking on me. But there's no denying the impact it had on me and it's a story I will not forget.
MAYBE SOMEDAY by Colleen Hoover
It's no surprise that Colleen Hoover appears on this list more than once. The woman knows how to write a story that packs an emotional wallop with characters that are believable and endearing. Maybe Someday was the first book I read by Hoover and instantly cemented her as a favorite author.
THE TRUTH ABOUT MELODY BROWNE by Lisa Jewell
Lisa Jewell is one of those authors I was lucky enough to discover early in her career and have continued to read and enjoy everything she writes. The Truth About Melody Brown, however, took it to another level. I was completely invested in Melody and her search for the truth about her background. In Melody, Jewell created a character with such charm and such resilience. The story was so poignant and I was so glad to have read it.
FIREFLY LANE by Kristin Hannah
Firefly Lane is the book that introduced my to Kristin Hannah and will always be special to me. I loved this story of friendship - the kind that begins in childhood, when you click with someone and feel like she's your other half. The kind that endures no matter what. Kate and Tully's story is unforgettable.
