The Dream Job by Kiersten Modglin

I read this book in June.

This book was so unique, right from the first page you are hooked. It starts in the most peculiar way, and you don’t really know where it is going… but then things start to take off. And boy do they take off. This book was fast paced, with a plot that doesn’t quit and an intense cast of characters.

When We Believe in Mermaids by Barbara O’Neal

I read this book sometime in June.

I loved this novel. The story is so dynamic and unique. The range of emotions is vast, and the writing is beautiful. This is a story about forgiveness, love, family and truth. This is a story that shows you that a soul mate does not have to be a romantic partner. Sometimes a soul mate is a best friend, a sister. And sometimes taking a big risk is worth it. I give this book four out of five stars.

The Better Choice by Kiersten Modglin

A modern day fairytale told in a way that only Kiersten can pull off. This story was so beautiful. Change mixed with heartache and grief, topped with healing and growth is a powerful and ambitious task to take on, and it was executed in such a realistic and careful way. I found myself cheering for Blythe, and until t-h-e twist… I didn’t know who I wanted to be THE guy. I definitely did not see the shocking twist coming, but it played out is such a magically perfect manner. The descriptions of how Blythe felt moving to New York from her small hometown made me feel as though I were standing in her (Blythe’s) shoes. This is a tale that definitely proves that having it all, is oftentimes not nearly as charming as assumed, and that second chances are worth it. I really enjoyed this book, and I really enjoyed the characters and their journeys. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

…and they lived happily ever after… cue the happy tears
