Last month when I read a new adult fiction book, I fell in love (you can read about it here). When picking up a new book, you never really know what kind of experience you will have. A new book is a journey you are about to embark on.

Some of the books I have included this month are from well known authors, while others are a bit less known. You can find historical, contemporary, and rip-your-heart-out (Jodi Picoult I'm looking at you!) fiction. I hope this list gives you ideas of a new read you may want to pick up.
