Top 10 Tuesday: Ten Books We're Thankful For - […] 11. Stealing Parker: Miranda’s books are full of awesome characters (that bleed over between novels so you get to see glimpses of couples you loved in multiple books) and very real situations – family problems, trouble defining relationships, abandonment, etc. I wish a new Miranda book came out every month. I would be the happiest girl on earth if this were real. (My review.) […]

Kristen Evey - I’ve been wanting to read Catching Jordan for awhile now, and this also sounds really good! I just read two other books that have to deal with faith and God and questions and doubts, etc. They were both extremely well done. Excited to add another to that list. 🙂 Thanks for the review Magan.

Julie - In my opinion, the ending was so abrupt I felt like it was missing a whole chapter. I did read it as an e-book, which makes the ending sneak up regardless, but I was so unsatisfied that I was actually a bit mad. It was a great story, I just thought the ending would be more climactic.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - You are seriously making my TBR list grow every time I read a review on the site (from either you or Magan). This one sounds so interesting! It’s definitely different, and I think that’s what makes it appealing to me!
