Stephenie Meyer has kicked major literary butt again with "The Chemist". I love every single one of her books. Every. Single. One. "The Chemist" was so far removed from everything else I've read from Meyer and she wrote it like she is a seasoned pro in this genre. Meyer has this amazing ability to form these relationships with her characters that are incredibly improbable but soooooo believable. This has made for some intriguing stories.

"Moonstone Beach" is what I would call the perfect beach (or poolside) read. Each character is like someone you know (or wish you did). Cambria sounds like a beautiful little town and the camaraderie of those who inhabit it brings a coziness to the story. Seed writes her characters lovingly. From Kate's inner circle to those who skim it each encounter is written with the aura of love. It's clear that these characters hold significance to Seed and her love for them will bleed to the reader almost from page one.
The following are all books that were rated five stars by AlliesOpinions in 2015.
"Burned" is shocking. If I had to sum the entire book into one word that would be it. It's authenticity is shocking. It's accuracy is shocking. It's subject matter is shocking. But, this story needs to be told and I am extremely glad that Hopkins has told it so masterfully.
How's everyone in book land doing? I recently read a book that had some very intriguing supporting characters and to be honest, they really made the book. The main character was annoying and drove me nuts. That book got me thinking about the importance of supporting characters and how they can make or break a story.
