This week I’m reading:

Reason to Breathe (Breathing, #1) “Reason to Breathe” from the Breathing Series by Rebecca Donovan

Summary From GoodReads:

“No one tried to get involved with me, and I kept to myself.  This was the place where everything was supposed to be safe and easy.  How could Evan Mathews unravel my constant universe in just one day?”

In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection while pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises – not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth – but at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.

Reason to Breathe is an electrifying page turner from start to finish, a unique tale of life-changing love, unspeakable cruelty, and one girl’s fragile grasp of hope…


“Fine, if that’s how he felt, then he should’ve gone.  He obvioiusly couldn’t stand to look at me, so why should I care if he left?!  Now I don’t have to worry about him yelling at me, or making me feel guilty for my decisions.  I don’t care if I never see him again.”

“This was almost convincing, but my heart stuttered in panic at the thought of not seeing his face in the halls.”


So I’ll leave you with that –

If you’ve read it, love to hear feedback, I”m fairly frustrated already with Emma’s situation – mad that someone coudl treat someone that way in general!! I’m hoping for Evan to be a miracle but not sure how things will go —

Happy Reading!
