Fiction while in a Relationship

When I started courting/dating Scott (we never were sure exactly what to call it), I almost stopped reading. I mean seriously, all the other love stories out there seemed to pale in comparison to ours. Non-fiction was hard because most of the books on relationships people tried to give us just really didn’t fit us (more on that later). 

However, today I thought I might share with you the fiction books I read during this time and loved. 

Love, Paris by Natasha Metzler This was the first fiction I had read after Scott told me he loved me. Just like Emma and the Reasons, Metzler delivered a seriously rich novel with realistic characters that pull you in. This book wasn't easy to read (my full review is coming soon) but it was powerful. It was just the thing to get me reading again.

After this, I got back into reading, but mostly audiobooks so that I could work on wedding stuff or play a game to relax while reading the book. I used Scribd, my favorite service for being able to listen to a lot of audiobooks without breaking the bank. 

The Librarian of Boone's Hollow by Kim Vogel Sawyer.  Kate Forbes did a wonderful job narrating this book. It was a gentle story, the kind you can enjoy without feeling emotionally drained at the end. Sawyer is a solid author and I look forward to reading more by her. 

Things We Didn't Say by Amy Lynn Green. This book... I don't even know where to start. Even though it's been months, this is one of those books that was so good and touched me so much that I just want to gush about it. It was told completely through letters, which I loved. I really need to write a proper review for it. Green is a new favorite.

Right around the wedding, I went on a Alcott kick. As I wrapped up wedding details. I lisened to Barbara Caruso read Little Women, Little Men, Jo's Boys, Eight Cousins, and Rose in Bloom. Caruso is a talented narrator revisiting these stories are all dear and close to my heart.
