  1. Great list! A lot of these are on my TBR as well… The Power is an excellent read and I’m a fan of Rainbow Rowell’s stories (with the exception of Landline, which didn’t work for me). I hope you will enjoy these!

    • I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed The Power. My husband is reading that one as well right now as apparently he has decided to join the book club I attend. I am pretty excited that I’ve convinced him to do this. I’ve only read one Rainbow Rowell book before, so I am looking forward to reading a bit more by her.
