Happy Monday! I know Monday’s suck… which is why I decided to post my Standalone Sunday today instead of yesterday… so I could make your Monday so much better! (Ok, so that’s not completely true… really, I just didn’t have time yesterday.) But let’s pretend for a second that’s not the real reason. 😉
So, I haven’t had a chance to browse the blogosphere and check out all your posts from yesterday, but I will be doing that as soon as I’m finished posting this. So if you participated yesterday and don’t see your name below at first, don’t worry! It’ll get there! Alright, so let’s see which standalone books were recommended this week…
Standalone Sunday is a feature created by yours truly where each Sunday we will feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend! There’s tons of focus on books that are part of a series… I thought it’d be nice to focus on some standalone novels, too!
Feel free to join in on this weekly feature by creating your own Standalone Sunday post! And you’re more than welcome to use the image I created. Link to your post in the comments below or make sure you link back to this post so I can check it out and add you down below!
→ Note: If you want to participate, but haven’t read many standalone’s, feel free to create a post featuring a standalone on your TBR, or one you want to read. The books you feature can be standalone books that look/sound good to you! It’s not a requirement to use only books you’ve read.
Genuine Sweet by Faith Harkey
Twelve-year-old Genuine Sweet, of tiny Sass, Georgia, can grant any wish… except her own. It’s a peculiar predicament, considering how much she could use a few wishes. New friends help Genuine give her family a boost–and then she takes her gift global! Life finally seems to be on the mend. But when she’s faced with unexpected trouble that no amount of wishing can fix, Genuine must puzzle out the difference between wishing for a better life and building one.
When I read this book in 2015, I rated it five stars. This book is so deserving of that rating and more. It’s a Middle Grade Fantasy novel, with a main character who can grant wishes. Her only problem is that she can’t grant them for herself. The concept of this book is truly adorable and the characters unique and quirky. I also liked that it is set in a small town. There’s just so much about this book that made me fall in love with it. And after two years, I think it’s about time for a re-read. The title got it right, because this book is so sweet and heartwarming, and I highly recommend it.
