Heart Breaths by K.K.Hendin

“New Adult” is a frustrating genre for me.  Since I am an “older” Young Adult reader.  A genre that focuses on more mature characters sounds really appealing.   Too frequently, I have found the label “New Adult” meant very violent or highly sexual situations for the older characters.  These two characteristics are the reason I shy away from some of the adult books.  So I have been very picky with what I read in the “New Adult” genre.  I am very pleased to say that Heart Breaths by K.K. Hendin was a pleasant surprise.
The …

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

This book was such a happy surprise.  Although I have read and loved all of Maggie Stiefvater’s books, this latest series was not something that appealed to me from the book blurb.  Fortunately for me, a quick visit to my BFF’s bookshelf, convinced me to give it a chance and I am so glad.  I could not put this book down.  Every twist and turn was a surprise for me.  I can’t figure out where the story is headed and I love that.  The story of Blue and her Raven …

After a clandestine romance, they marry in January 1914, …
