Cherish - Tracey Garvis-Graves A couple of weeks ago, I was looking through my TBR and Covet by TGG caught my attention.  I had been putting off reading for a while and I guess I felt like the time was right to read it.  Long story short, I really enjoyed that book.  It completely pulled me in and ate my brain.  After I finished it, I was talking with a blogger friend who also reads TGG and I was gushing about it and then....poof! I was offered a review copy of Cherish by the author.  Being that I had just finished Covet and I was jonesing for the conclusion to Daniel's story, I accepted the gracious offer.

My thoughts about Covet via Goodreads:
I started this one late last night and got about 20% in and went to sleep. Today, I finished it. I procrastinated and just let myself disappear into this book. Ms. Garvis-Graves always manages to pull me into her books by my throat. :)
This one has been on my Kindle for quite awhile and I wanted to read it before the next book in the series comes out 10/28. Mission accomplished!
Hours later, this book is still sitting with me. TGG's books always tend to stay with me afterwards and "stew" in my brain. You have to be a patient reader of TGG's books and understand that she is going to take you on a bit of a journey. I think we've become a bit ADD with our books and don't have as much patience for anything over 60k words. TGG needs you to be patient.

Enter Cherish, a follow up novella to Covet.  I'm really glad Ms. Graves wrote this novella, it was an excellent bookend to Covet.  I really don't want to give too much away, so I'm going to be careful with what I say here.  I thoroughly enjoyed Cherish, I'm so glad that Ms. Graves decided to give Daniel and Jessie a fulfilling story and closure. :)

I will say that if you haven't read Covet or have been waiting, now is the time to read it.  I think having Cherish to slide right into is the best way to go, because you'll want to read Daniel's story as soon as you finish Covet!
