Jane Austen. One I have not yet read. But will!! #janeausten #persuasion #mustread
Of all Jane Austen’s great and delightful novels, Persuasion is widely regarded as the most moving. It is the story of a second chance. Anne Elliot, daughter of the snobbish, Sir Walter Elliot, is a woman of quiet charm and deep feelings. When she was nineteen, she fell in love with–and was engaged to–a naval officer, the fearless and headstrong Captain Wentworth. But the young man had no fortune, and Anne allowed herself to be persuaded, against her profoundest instinct, to give him up. But he never stopped loving her, in fact his love grew and loves her even more upon seeing her again. "A heart even more" her own than when she almost broke it eight and a half years ago.

I loved this collaborative effort between the famed authors John Green and David Levithan. Teen books can sometimes be too much--too dramatic or too emotional--and also have sort of perfect endings. This book was perfect in a real-life sort of way where you grow and learn rather than get exactly what you think you want. The characters were so real, too. Confused, crazy, loving, cruel. Great book! -Allison

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. Very good historical fiction & nothing to do with the 50 shades of grey books-thank goodness. This caught my attention because my mother-in-law is from Lithuania & I had no idea this happened in the Baltic states. It helps to be emotionally strong when reading these types of historical fiction books~ which are based upon true events.....which I'm always drawn to. ~Ang L.
