You know when a book grabs you on the first page and sucks you in so you never want to put it down and find random moments to read it all through the day (like when you brush your teeth) because you are just dying to know what happens next with the characters you are totally in love with and when you finally finish it are part happy (because the book was awesome) and sad (because now it's over)?
That's totally how I felt about The List by Melanie Jacobson!
I became an instant fan!
It took me a year to finally wrestle this book away from my teenage niece so I could have a chance to read it. She promised me when she bought it at LDStorymakers that I could take a crack at it when she was done. She made a brilliant purchase! Wish I was smart like her.
I'm gushing. I know. But, maybe it's just because I'm such a sucker for well written clean romance and there's so much that isn't either much less both out there that I get jump-up-and-down-on-the-bed excited when I find a new book and author to champion and of course buy.
Verdict: Read this! There's a few smooches but nothing to make you blush.
I may even encourage my own kids to make a list of their own on their 18th birthdays with the reminder that they can find that eternal companion and complete the list even after their married. Probably before kids though, especially the skydiving. I wanted to do that before getting married. Now with kids, I'm right there with Ryder.
What's on your 'list'?
