2. Not That Kind Of Girl
Sometimes women just need to know they are not the only ones going through certain situations in life, and that they are not alone in this unpredictable world.
Not That Kind Of Girl is another awesome and encouraging autobiography that gives women the girl power and encouragement we all need sometimes. Lean Dunham touches on so many different scenarios that we have either been through ourselves, or know someone who has. She'll have you crying from laughter one second and screaming "PREACH" the next.
This book contains some serious character building. Currently struggling with anything in life right now? I think we all are. This book is exactly what you need to lead you to prayer for every situation, good and bad, and how to do it.
"You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted. So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down." - Priscilla Shirer
4. The Girl On The Train
Now for a page turner! Love mystery stories and bizarre investigations? This one is for you!
5. The Selection Series
Who said fairytales don't exist? Not these girls. The Selections series will have you hooked from the first book, and you won't be able to stop until they are finished, and then you'll wish they never finished!
The Selection Series is all about the thrilling selection from Prince Maxon on who will take his hand in marriage. 35 lucky ladies are selected from their caste to move to the palace to live until he makes his final decision. However, there is one girl, America, who does not wish to be there because she is already in love with another man. Or is she? This series will have you hooked until you find out who Maxon chooses, and who America ends up with. Don't worry it's not all a mushy-gushy love story; there's some thriller action involved throughout!
6. The Choice
Love a good Nicholas Sparks love story? He never disappoints, and you definitely won't be with this sweet summer read!
"How far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?" That's the serious question here. Sparks does such a great job capturing the readers attention through the relationship drama between Travis and Gabby and their pasts. They are new neighbors and Travis is in awe of Gabby, even though he has never been the dating type. Watch these two characters transform their friendship and love, and find out what "the choice" will be!
7. The Good Girl
Holy moly do we have a thriller for you! Another great, nail-biting, mystery story that will have you finishing the book in one day.
8. The Husband's Secret
We clearly love the suspenseful mystery novels, and this one is just as good as the others! The Husband's Secrets is a novel that tests the trust of love, family, and friendship.
I know the first thing you thought the husband's secret is an affair... but it is so much more than that. This novel will have you jaw-dropped as the plot twists keep coming. See how three women's lives get twisted and interwind as the murder of a young girl gets detected. Most importantly find out the secrets Cecilia's husband writes in the letter made for her to read after his death.
9. My Sunshine Away
Okay we PROMISE this is the last mystery novel. We love that this one is set in the southern state of Louisiana, in Baton Rouge. It just makes it that much more quivering.
10. Harry Potter Series
I would hate to say we saved the best for last... but we saved the best for last! I was astonished when one of my friends told me they had never even seen any of the Harry Potter movies, or read the books. I told her she had to read the books first, but really it doesn't matter how you do it, just do it! Even if you have seen every movie a million times but never read the books, READ THE BOOKS! They will leave you feeling magical!
"We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already. We have the power to imagine better." - J.K. Rowling
