I am still behind on writing reviews, but here are some of the 4- and 5-star books I’ve read recently. Click on the book title to open my full review from Opinionated Book Lover.
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
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
Today’s post will be linked up with Modern Mrs. Darcy for her Quick Lit series.
