During my lunch hour I have been spending quite a bit of time reading! I was going to do three different review posts but decided to just keep them all together in this one blog post to keep things simple!
The first book I downloaded on my Kindle is If I Stay by Gayle Forman. This novel chronicles Mia as she is in the hospital after a car accident. Her parents and brother were all killed before making it to the hospital but Mia is in a coma and is fighting for survival. She has an out-of-body experience and gets to decide if she wants to stay and fight for her life or if she would prefer to pass on and be with her family.
Mia is a musician and plays the cello which causes her to deeply connect with her boyfriend Adam. Her memories are mostly of him as she fights for her life and Adam fights to be able to help her.
I found this book to be quite the quick read but I enjoyed it immensely. I really want to watch the movie and it is on my to-watch list for the near future!
After finishing If I Stay, I knew I needed to read Where She Went which is Adam's (Mia's boyfriend) story from after her accident and recovery. Apparently Mia went to Julliard and left him behind without any explanation and he is in pain himself. Reading Adam's story wasn't quite as captivating as Mia's in the first book but I did enjoy it and finished the book rather quickly. If you have read If I Stay I would highly recommend reading Where She Went so you can see the continuation of Mia and Adam's story.
Of course being a big Bachelor fan I needed to read Sean Lowe's book For The Right Reasons. (If I'm being honest I think I'm a bigger fan of his sister Shay then I am of Sean) I really liked that Sean's book contained so much behind the scenes information from the Bachelor and showed how it truly works. There were many religious mentions which aren't really my thing- but most of the book was truly enjoyable and I found myself excited to find out new things that I didn't know about Sean and the show.
