Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
Ruth, a nurse, begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she's been reassigned. The parents are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?
This book was hard to read but SO good. Such an important read.
Starflight by Melissa Landers
Just out of the orphanage, Solara Brooks needs a fresh start. She's so desperate to reach the outer realm that she's willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback. He and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest.
This book was a great hard-turned-love romance with fun squad goals. It reminded me of Firefly.
The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen
From the outside, Sycamore Glen, North Carolina, might look like the perfect all-American neighborhood. But behind the white picket fences lies a web of secrets that reach from house to house.
I don't normally like character-driven novels, but there were so many great characters in this book, and the suspense of finding out all of the secrets made this book one that I couldn't put down.
What Light by Jay Asher
Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon. Every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot. Sierra lives two lives. And leaving one always means missing the other. Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.
This holiday romance is super cute. It was full of great characters and just the right amount of Christmas cheer.
Today's post will be linked up with Modern Mrs. Darcy for her Quick Lit series.
