Review: Bring Me Home by Cassia Leo

Review: Bring Me Home by Cassia Leo

If you’ve been hanging around here at New Adult Addiction over the last week, you know that Bring Me Home by Cassia Leo is now available. If you read Julie’s review yesterday, you know it rocks. (Make sure to check out her giveaway too.) Just in case we haven’t convinced you to try out the Shattered Hearts series yet, today I bring you another review. What I liked: I usually hate love triangles. Immensely. But sometimes they just work, and this was one of those times.

REVIEW: Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

REVIEW: Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker

Ten Tiny Breaths is one of those novels that will stick with me for a long time. I still remember reading The Awakening in school. And To Kill A Mockingbird. Those books made an impression that lasted, and so did Ten Tiny Breaths. Reading it left me feeling lost and devastated and then healed, right along with Kacey. It’s the type of book that becomes a part of you, and you think that Kacey and Trent live down the hall from you. Just breathe, Kacey. Ten tiny breaths. Seize them. Feel them. Love them. Four years ago Kacey Cleary’s life imploded when her car was hit by a drunk driver, killing her parents, boyfriend, and best friend. Still haunted by memories of being trapped inside, holding her boyfriend’s lifeless hand and listening to her mother take her last breath, Kacey wants to leave her past behind. Armed with two bus… Read more »
