Ten Tiny Breaths - K.A. Tucker I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.After taking a little time to recover from all the emotions caused by reading Ten Tiny Breaths, I can officially say this has earned a place on my favorites list. I can’t remember the last time I felt so connected to a main character. It was the perfect combination of passion, healing, and self discovery that really pulled at my heartstrings.I felt for Kacey the book. Who wouldn’t feel for a girl who not only lost her parents, but her best friend and boyfriend in a car accident? I would be messed up like her too. Not to mention, I have a problem with holding grudges myself. That would just be so hard and devastating.At first, I did not like the fact that Kacey was so cold-hearted and mean to everyone. But, as the story progressed I began to understand more and more about how bad she had her guard up. People cope with things in different ways, and this was just her way. She had a right to be acting that way because she was emotionally destroyed. I would also detach myself from the world if I had been through this traumatic experience.Some of the things that I loved about this book, was the raw emotion and the relationships she had with the other characters. The characters were all so very well developed that I found myself connecting with each of them in a way. Kacey was always protecting her sister, Livie, which showed she still had a heart. She was still a sweet, caring person deep down inside. I loved how the other characters came into play and helped bring those enormous walls down little by little. I even loved Trent. He seemed like the perfect guy for Kacey and their relationship made my heart sing (as well as break). Her journey to forgiveness was so powerful. I always enjoy seeing a character find their true selves.This book was such an emotional roller coaster I found myself not wanting to get off of. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a touching story about healing and forgiveness.“Take ten tiny breaths. Seize them. Feel them. Love them.”See this review and others like it on my blog Confessions of a Bookie Monster
