Did you guys miss me? Sorry for the lack of posts this last week or so. I’ve been insanely busy with prep for upcoming finals, my 18th birthday, I’ve been sick and I was away at the most amazing conference in the world all weekend. Today, I’m gonna be doing a couple tags and stuff I’ve been nominated for simply because I REALLY need something to do 😛
I was nominated for this Tag by Mariella Hunt
Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover
Isn’t the cover for this book epic?! I seriously saw the cover and had to buy it. I don’t usually do that, but thats what I did. I just grabbed the book and bought it…and I was not disappointed by the amazingness of this book either.
Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary
So, I didn’t get a chance to finish this before I had to take it back to the library BUT I’m gonna get it again because it is a great story and the summary totally drew me in. And now, I will share it with you now 🙂
A novel about three generations of midwives (a woman, her mother, and her grandmother) and the secrets they keep that push them apart and ultimately bind them together
THE SECRETS OF MIDWIVES tells the story of three generations of women devoted to delivering new life into the world—and the secrets they keep that threaten to change their own lives forever. Neva Bradley, a third-generation midwife, is determined to keep the details surrounding her own pregnancy—including the identity of the baby’s father— hidden from her family and co-workers for as long as possible. Her mother, Grace, finds it impossible to let this secret rest. For Floss, Neva’s grandmother and a retired midwife, Neva’s situation thrusts her back 60 years in time to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter’s—a secret which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all. Will these women reveal their secrets and deal with the inevitable consequences? Or are some secrets best kept hidden?

This kept me up ALL night and it was totally worth it. Such an amazing and beautifully crafted story.

Basically, If you haven’t read this book, then read it. Warning: This book WILL (without a doubt) move you to help make a difference in peoples lives and give them hope!*

Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book in which you love the way it feels
Such a fun, and awesome book with two beautiful covers and tons of awesomeness. Almost like a little pocket book and I LOVE that.
Phase 8 – Meeting the Parents: A book in which you would recommend to your friends and family
Not only is this a book written by a family member, but it is amazing and I would (and do) recommend it to everyone. Including my family.
Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series that you know you’ll re-read many times in the future
Stillllll waiting on the last book of the series, but I would totally read this over and over and over again. So much amazingness like you have NO idea.
