(altered from Chick Loves Lit
“Recommend A…” will have a new prompt every week, which Shanyn will have posted ahead of time on the Recommend A… page. All you have to do is Recommend with Chick Loves Lit on Mondays, following the prompt, and link up so Shanyn (and everyone else) can see what you’ve recommended!

 This week's prompt:

book that made you emotional

A young woman struggles to escape the shadow of her mother's addiction and neglect in this story from the author of "Such a Pretty Girl." (from Goodreads)

From my review, June 2011: Ordinary Beauty has left me a wreck. Never have I been left so emotionally drained from reading a book. While this may sound negative to some, it is one of the best feelings I can great from reading. I know this book and Sayre's story will be with me for a long time. You can read my entire review here.

Ordinary Beauty is a must read. If any of my readers have already read it, please me know if you have posted a review. I'd love to know what other's think about this emotional story.


  1. I read Such a Pretty Girl and remember that one being emotional so I'm not surprised this one is, too! Great pick, I don't think Weiss is as widely known for emotional books as she should be!

  2. I haven't heard of this one, but have heard of Such a Pretty Girl! I really want to start reading more contemporary, especially ones that are more emotional. I love contemporary like that!

  3. I haven't heard of this book, but just from the summary excerpt and your review excerpt I know I'll have to have tissues handy!

  4. I've not heard of this book or the author for that matter. But, it sounds like an incredibly intense and emotional read. I'll be adding it to my TBR list to read when I get the chance. Thanks so much for the recommendation!

  5. I hadn't heard of this book before your post. Sounds like it must be a very well written book to affect you that much!
