Winter Garden  by Kristin Hannah

I read The Winter Garden by Kristen Hannah.  This is a story about the hardships during Lenin's rule in Russia.   The strength and resiliency the characters show is amazing.  I wanted to put this book aside several times because of the depressive nature of much of the story.  But I just couldn't put it down!  I think I may have to take it out again and re-read it to make sure I didn't miss anything.  If you read this you will be entranced with the story.
 
Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks

I really enjoyed this book.  I did not expect it to end the way it did, but it had a very touching ending. 
Do you give the best of yourself to the one you love the most?
 
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
by Seth Grahame-Smith

If you think you know our 16th president, think again. This historical fiction has woven together actual historical events with the fantasy world of vampires. Highly entertaining but be warned, it is quite gruesome and graphic at times.
 







 If I Stay  by Gayle Forman

This is such a good book!  I could not read it fast enough. This is a beautifully written story about a young girls life and the love that surrounds her and the choice that she makes after being in a horrible car accident with her family.

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

This is the sequel to the book If I Stay.  This story takes place three years after Mia's accident and is told from Adam's point of view.  In this book we see how Mia's accident affects Adam, the grief that he has gone though without Mia by his side, and how it has transformed him into a huge rock star.  Now fate has brought Adam and Mia together for one last night with each other.  What choice will they make now? 
This book was just as good as If I Stay.  Gayle Forman did a beautiful job in the writing of these two books!
