Melancholy by Bella Jewel
Melancholy - Bella Jewel

Couldn't sleep at night. Wanted to read something with a big font (The Princess Bride has such a tiny font). Started this book. What can I say. Another wonderful example of tstl heroine. 
I was yelling in my head, "Don't, you moron! Don't go out alone at night!" And of course Santana went out and got hurt. No brain activity at all. And did she learn? No. She did it again and again. It was painful to read. After all that I started to question Maddox's sanity. How could he love a woman so dumb?

All Summer Long by Susan Mallery
Terve pikk suvi (Fool's Gold, #9) - Susan Mallery,Raili Puskar

Actually, I was kind of hoping it to be a boring story, so I could stop reading the series. It wasn't. Although All Summer Long was an easy read, it was unbelievably good.
I enjoyed the storyline. The main characters, Charlie and Clay, were smart, independent, and interesting. The book had enough romance, family drama, and also some wonderfully hilarious moments. The ending was very similar to all the other endings in this series, but I didn't care. Charlie and Clay were amazing. I fell in love with this couple. I wanted them to have their happily ever after.
Now I just have to read the next story and hope it is as good as this one. :) 
I also think Fool's Gold would be a great TV series.

Miles to Go
Miles to Go - Richard Paul Evans

This book continues the story from The Walk.  

 

Alan Christoffersen is on a journey, a soul searching walk across the US.  He started in Seattle after he lost everything.  His wife died, his partner stole his business, and his cars and home were repossessed.  He was thinking about giving up and ending it all but something stopped him.  Instead, he grabbed a map and figured out the farthest he could walk on land and set his sites on Key West Florida.  At the end of The Walk he was attacked by a gang and serious injured.  He ended up staying with a woman who he had helped on his walk.  He fixed her tire and she gave him her card.  He forgot all about it but when he was taken to the hospital that number was the only contact info on him.  She came to help and offered him a place to stay while he healed.  While he was there he realized he wasn't there for her to help him.  She needed help herself.  

 

After Alan was healed enough to return to his walk he saw young woman being attacked by a group of men.  He helped her and she began to walk with him.  After she finally talked about her situation his heart really went out to her.  She was an abused child put in the foster system.  She was nearly 18 and since she knew she was going to be on her own soon anyway, she ran away and was living on the streets.  She was a great girl and didn't deserve her situation.  Alan really wanted to help her.

This is a great soul-searching story for both the character and the reader.  I found several little gems to add to my quote book.  I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series and continuing the journey along with Alan.

Mail Order Bride - Abused Broken But Saved By the Cowboy
Mail Order Bride - Abused Broken But Saved By the Cowboy: A Clean Historical Western Romance (The Big Beautiful Brides of the Old West Book 1) - Emma Jean

Hannah was verbally and physically abused by her father and her mother wasn't much nicer to her. After listening to her father criticize her for years she had to get away from him so she answered an ad to be a Mail Order Bride. She traveled a week to get to the man who wanted to be her husband. She had high hopes her life would be better with this man. After spending a few weeks in his home which he shared with his sister and grandfather, Hannah saw him as the cruel man he really was.

I really enjoyed this quick historical romance. The story flowed well and was quite emotional. Poor Hannah had a terrible life but this tale ended with a HEA. Yay.
