Little Bee by Chris Cleave
I won’t spoil the author’s intention of keeping Little Bee a beautiful surprise, so the plot of the novel will not be revealed. However, I will say it’s an incredible story of a refugee from Nigeria and a successful career woman from London.
The chapters are long, but the two women’s story is beautifully and poetically written. I immediately loved the authors writing style from the first paragraph. He brings you into the story softly and gently but keeps you there with an intensity in which you can hear the narrators’ voices and truly feel the nature of their feelings.
This book is also available with Kindle Unlimited Membership Plans.
It’s an immensely sad story, but it’s one you want to hear time and again because of its beauty. It’s a novel of conflicting emotions throughout: sad but beautiful; intense but comforting; strong but soft. These contradictions are made so perfectly in unison I feel as though you can’t have the one without the other in their story of love and hate.
This is a story to be read multiple times.

Book of the Month Club
I enjoyed books so much that I joined the Book of the Month Club to continue receiving the latest and greatest books via mail. Some of the books are exclusive to BOTM club members a month prior to their official publishing date! Each month I’m excited about the monthly selections, and it’s tough to select just one. (And when I can’t decide on one, I can add additional books for a small add-on charge and – as always – shipping is included in the monthly membership fee.) Can’t find one you want? That’s okay, too! Skip a month, pocket the credit to spend next month, and you won’t be charged for that current month.
