Throughout a few years, I have read a good number of books that don’t get talked about as much I think they should. I really enjoyed these books and think that more people should read them. I have a bunch of others, so I might make another post like this in the future.
Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
Genre: Historical Fiction
This is a beautiful story following the niece of Hitler where she meets a Jewish reporter and learns the truth behind her “beloved” uncle. It is extensively researched and is like no other World War II book I’ve ever read. It takes place around the beginning of Hitler’s rise and is extremely fascinating.
Come Back to Me by Mila Gray
Genre: Young Adult Romance
Come Back to Me is the first book in a series about military romances. This one follows the romance between Jessa and her brother’s best friend, Kit. I recommend all of the books written by Mila Gray (they are all companion novels and don’t have to be read in order) and are perfect if you are a fan of Nicholas Sparks and his books.
Before I Let You Go by Kelly Rimmer
Genre: Adult Contemporary
Kelly Rimmer is one of my favorite authors and in this novel, she writes about two estranged sisters: a drug addict that recently learned she is pregnant and a successful doctor. It is extremely impactful and made me cry my eyes out. This is one of my favorite adult contemporaries and definitely deserves more attention.
We’ll Fly Away by Bryan Bliss
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
We’ll Fly Away is told through third person and letters from death row. It tells the story between 2 friends with poor home lives who want to leave their town once they graduate. It is hard-hitting, powerful, addictive, and makes you think about what is happening in real life.
