“There’s a fine line between love and hate, so fine that you don’t know you’ve lost balance until it’s too late. I’m not sure exactly when I lost my balance, all I know is that he was to blame.”

The Line Between by Tamsyn Bester

Oh, this intrigued me so much! I’m a sucker for a good love/hate relationship. After reading this, I just had to know why this mysterious HE was to blame and what their relationship is like. I’m about 40 pages in now, but I am loving it so far!

“All girls dream about falling in love, don’t they? I did, anyway, for years and years. And then I went one better. I fell on love.”

– The Frog Prince by Sophie Ranald

I loved this opener. It just sounded like a fairy tale, which is what I thought of when I saw the cover, and exactly what I’m in the mood for. I’m about a quarter of the way into the book, and so far so good.

All It Takes by Sadie Munroe

Not only did this opener make me want to keep reading, but it’s also completely true. I love relatable quotes like this. I’m only about 40 pages in, but I am loving this book. So far, two outsiders with troubled pasts meet, and I cannot wait to see where it goes from there.
