Reading progress update: I've read 64%.
The Cleaner of Chartres - Salley Vickers

I'm actually enjoying this more than I expected to, which is fabulous. This book, and many like it on my reading list, are my effort to break out of my YA/Fantasy prison that I've built for myself. I keep taking suggestions from other readers on books that they love, and giving them a shot. So far I'm happy with this one!

 

Does anyone have any other recommendations of good Historical Fiction? I'd like to stay away from anything that deals with war time, or too much drama, since I'm still working my way out of a funk. I'll happily take anything you throw my way though!

Secrets
Off-Campus Setup - Maria Vickers

Levi is finally getting to pursue his dream.  He has arrived at college with a plan.  Until he finds he may not be able to live where he thought.  Now he has to hurry or go back home.

 

Nathan knows it is time to grow up.  He has not looked forward to living the life his parents have chosen.  He wants to choose his future.  When he and Levi crash into one another it is a jaw dropping, eye opener.  Will the secrets come out and change the course?

 

Sweet and tender, this story starts out slow and picks up steam.  These characters are learning to become the young adults they know they can be.  What they find is they can be stronger as a team.  Navigating emotions are always hard, it helps to have someone in your corner.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

Lecretia's Choice: A Story of Love, Deat... Lecretia's Choice: A Story of Love, Death and the Law - Matt Vickers

Books such as this are neither good, nor bad, just varying degrees of horribleness. This is Matt's account of his beautiful wife, Lecretia's battle against a virulent brain tumour plus a fight with the New Zealand government to change the law so that people in similar situations can choose how and when to die. She was a successful high flying lawyer when she started getting the first worrying symptoms of this merciless illness. Brutally honest about what happened, how they coped, his feelings and the shortcomings of the New Zealand health service. Very sad, but uplifting at the same time.

The Natural Order - R. Renee Vickers

I had to put this book in my DNF pile. This story started strong, but ended up losing my interest very quickly. Maybe I'll try this book again down the road.

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - By the Book by Maria Vickers
By the Book - Maria Vickers
By the Book is a story that will give you the warm fuzzies as you pray for Josh and Sam to get together, and to STAY together. This may sound easy, but these two have both families against them. Josh does act immature at times, but he is actually mature enough to realise it! Sam is trying so hard to do the right thing, that he may end up losing the best thing for him.
 
This is a wonderful story, excellently told, and giving great insight into how family can cause issues even if they are not on the doorstep! With plenty of situations to keep the characters on their toes, their characters grow throughout. This is definitely a feel-good book, that has no editing or grammatical errors that I noticed.
 
Hot, steamy, tender, poignant, it's all here. Definitely recommended by me.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
