Follow Pen to Paper as host of the meme.
Please consider adding the blog hop button to your blog somewhere, so others can find it easily and join in too! Help spread the word!Pick a book that you've read, and have enjoyed enough to recommend to other readers. It can be a book you've read recently, or a book you read years ago - it's up to you - but make sure you tell us why you love the book (like a mini review). You make the post as long or as short as you like. 

For my first recommend I am gonna recommend Bleeding Violet by Dia reeves
Bleeding Violet

Goodreads synopsis:

Love can be a dangerous thing... 

Hanna simply wants to be loved. With a head plagued by hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet stuffed with frilly, violet dresses, Hanna's tired of being the outcast, the weird girl, the freak. So she runs away to Portero, Texas in search of a new home.
But Portero is a stranger town than Hanna expects. As she tries to make a place for herself, she discovers dark secrets that would terrify any normal soul. Good thing for Hanna, she's far from normal. As this crazy girl meets an even crazier town, only two things are certain: Anything can happen and no one is safe.

This book was strange but interesting. It was crazy but kept me reading. I loved the main character because she is flawed like a real person. The  style of this book is very different from any other book I've read but I love  that everything is from the main characters perspective so there is quite a bit of dialogue.

Oh! For the Love of Books button by Parajunkee

This week there was an activity instead of a question and it was:
Take a picture of or describe your favorite place to read!

I wish I could take a picture of my favorite place to read but unfortunately it's at my mother in law's house and its her hammock. She lives out in the country in North Carolina and in the spring and summer the weather is beautiful and all the birds chirping and it's in between two big pine trees, It's extremely peacful and serene!
