Adriana | 3888 comments Hi Melissa! You are doing really well on your challenge. What have been your favorites so far this year?

message 7: by Mell (new)

Mell (mellrouvray) Thanks! I have actually upped my challenge to 35 books - it was telling me I was always 5 ahead, so thought I would see how I went!

Definitely The Fault in Our Stars would have to be my number one.
But I have also loved the Beautiful series by Lilliana Anderson - I love that each main book has a different couple but they are all related. The latest companion book, Devotion: The Beauty in Between has all the previous couples in it so it's so great to see where their lives are up to :)

The Beautiful Series sounds like something I think... Danielle Steel did. It was about these siblings finding love and they mentioned those who got married and everything in the next books. I love that concept. It would be great to see the characters I connected with so much in one story in another story with other characters I connected so much with. If that makes any sense :P ~ sounds like a good series.

Mell (mellrouvray) Yeah it's a bit like that. Each main book focuses on a different couple, they are linked through friendship or other relationships that didn't work out - always characters that have been mentioned previously. It's so great because sometimes those side characters don't get much mention when you'd really like to get to know them :)
I definitely recommend reading them. I'm so glad I came across them. Waiting for the next book is torture haha.
