Thank you so much for joining me at the blog today! I'm happy to share the third installment of my feature on Leah Atwood, an excellent example of an indie author who delivers on her promise. What promise is that? Her goal is to leave the reader smiling when each book ends. So far, at least for me, she's held true to that promise. You'll see what I mean. Let's get to that review!
Book Review: Come to Me Alive by Leah Atwood
Come to Me Alive by Leah Atwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In this refreshing romance novel, Leah Atwood has done it again. I enjoyed reading this story set in Louisiana filled with characters who are more like the actual Cajun people I've known. To read about characters who struggle makes the story come to life in a way many romance tales of this length lack. As for the inspirational aspect, the way the characters do their best to live their faith is truly encouraging to watch, even as they go through hardships and wonder which direction they need to go. Overall, this book was one of the better examples of inspirational romance I've read. I'd recommend it to anyone from teens on up who enjoy a good love story.

By the time I finished reading all the books I'd chosen for this month's feature, I ended up tagging this one as my favorite of the lot. The story really tugged at my heart and while I'm not a huge fan of country music, I do like a few artists who seem to practice what they preach, at least as far as the public can tell. I think Leah did a good job of writing this country music artist in such a way.
This week, I've been reading Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles book 1) by Marissa Meyer. I'd seen this book around since it was first published and thought the cover interesting but I never picked it up. To be fair, I've come to look on YA books with a jaundiced eye. However, this one was indeed worth the risk because the hype was spot on. Check it out if you haven't yet!
I also finished reading the first of T.J. Muir's short stories. I'll be working on finishing the other two soon. (See below!)
#TBR Additions - Highlighting T.J. Muir
It's TBR time! This week, I'd like to share three new additions from author TJ Muir. (You can see the first one in the previous section as I've already finished reading it.) She writes the Chanmyr Chronicles and these three are short side stories which take place within that book world.
