Standalone Sunday

Standalone Sunday | February 5

standalone-1

Hello guys! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I most certainly am not. I have been sicker than a dog the past 2 days, it sucks!! Today is the first day I have even felt like doing anything other then sleeping, it has been seriously rough. So hopefully today will be the day I start feeling better, but who knows. At least I feel like I can get caught up on some reading and posts today so that is a good sign.

Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome Megan @ bookslayerReads.

This week I will be showcasing…

As the daughter of a meth dealer, Wavy knows not to trust people, not even her own parents. Struggling to raise her little brother, eight-year-old Wavy is the only responsible “adult” around. She finds peace in the starry Midwestern night sky above the fields behind her house. One night everything changes when she witnesses one of her father’s thugs, Kellen, a tattooed ex-con with a heart of gold, wreck his motorcycle. What follows is a powerful and shocking love story between two unlikely people that asks tough questions, reminding us of all the ugly and wonderful things that life has to offer.

I just recently finished All The Ugly and Wonderful Things, and I have to say that this book was truly amazing. It definitely was a dark, raw, beautiful story. I was so surprised by this book, there were so many elements that I just loved. I don’t know how the author took such a depressing story and turned into something so lovely but she did, and I would highly recommend that if you haven’t read this book yet, to do so now!

  1. Another book I’ve been wanting to read, but wasn’t aware that it was a standalone! Yay! Thanks for the recommendation and I hope you get to feeling better. There’s something nasty going around that I think is getting everyone, it seems like. I finally got over mine, so hopefully you will soon too!
