Top Ten Tuesday: Stories that made me cry


Hosted by That artsy reader girl.

This week topic was a freebie so we could create or own topic. After long contemplation and several list later I decided to go with books that made me cry.

Viki’s ARC review: Sky in the deep by Adienne Young


Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient, rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother’s betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered.

The last thing I want is his crooked grin and dark brown eyes focused on me.
Yet here he is, constantly in my space, pushing me, daring me to care. Telling me what I think and feel, as if he knows.
He doesn’t know anything. And I plan to keep it that way.

He’s the persistent playboy who refuses to walk away. I’m the impassive new girl with nothing left to give.

Things are about to get complicated. Continue reading “Viki’s review: Fumbled hearts by Meagan Brandy”
