Book Review – Reason to Breathe: The Breathing Series by Rebecca Donovan

18040398Reason to Breathe: The Breathing Series by Rebecca Donovan was published June 4th 2013 by Skyscape. USA Today Bestselling Novel “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—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―at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide. One girl’s story of life-changing love, unspeakable cruelty, and her precarious grasp of hope: Reason to Breathe is the first installment of the acclaimed Breathing Series.

4907787About the Author: Optimism seeps from every pore of my body. I truly believe that what’s supposed to happen… will! In that regard, I don’t know how to give up; it’s not part of my biological make up. I’m a passionate (and some would say, overly enthusiastic) person. I learn by doing (and have been burned more times that I’d like to admit), but I will always throw my entire self into whatever I do – fail or succeed. I think this is evident when I write, leaving nothing behind and spilling it all out on the pages. I give it all to my readers – love it or hate it. The path I’m on is very often my own, veering off the beaten path at the sight of something more interesting or captivating, getting caught in the vines and thorns in order to experience the beauty and intrigue others often pass by. And I always meet the most interesting people along the way…

My thoughts: When I got this book I had to start reading it right away because I have heard wonderful things about this book and the author. I was not disappointed. I could not put this book down because I had to know how it would end. Donovan creates a group of characters that you really get to know. This in depth knowledge of their backstories help you better understand their current situations and the overall plot line of the story. I found this to be an outstanding book that I highly recommend.
