I had the joy of reading J.K. Accinni's book Baby. The book itself pulled me in and it only took me 3 days to read because I kept forever getting lost in the story. I love the portrayal of Netty and how she goes from a caterpillar to a butterfly with the help of the amazing Baby. I could imagine baby trotting along behind Netty everywhere she went and I was just so very enthralled with his character. He was truly amazing. How he had unending and relentless love for Netty and then for Wil. I like how his demeanor changed when he was with the two different characters and how they formed a family where again beautiful things come from a damaged past. I especially like how Baby was the "protector" of the kittens that touched my heart and really showed the heart of Baby himself. Ms. Accinni is a very talented wordsmith and you can tell her heart was in this book fully heart and soul. I would read this again and again and if I could give it stars they would be infinite because I loved this story so very much! I can't wait to move on to Echo which is sitting right beside me as I type.
I just finished reading The Unraveling of Avery Snow. It's 3:30 AM and my heart is so warm and happy. I'm a huge AS fan already but the way the story moved and the progression of events leading to the ultimate ending is breathtaking. I am sad to see Avery go but I know that this is not the last we've heard of Christy Sloat. The story pulls you in and really puts you in Avery's shoes. You can see hear and smell everything that is going on around Avery. You can feel the love she has for her friends. Avery's a complicated woman just being, loving Dallas but feeling Landon's pull on her as her soulmate. It tears you apart as her whole world unravels around her, but then is re formed and new and beautiful. As far as happy endings go. I love the ending that was brought to Avery, Ianni, Kerri, Dallas, and of course Landon. Even Lillith has her own ending. It's a beautiful book beautifully written and completely understood from the heart of the amazing author.
