Each week we share with you what we are reading and enjoying. The following made the top of our lists last week. Please help us determine which 5 of these will be featured as fics of the week, next week, by choosing FIVE from the poll on the right!

Age of Consent by Littlesecret84-rec'd by Margey DeHuff Sebastian 
Bella's summer internship turns interesting when Charlie arranges for Edward to drive her to and from the courthouse. As they talk and get to know each other, the sexual attraction Bella feels from the beginning evolves into something more.

All We Are by SarahYoungEun-rec'd by Mercyrus Tales
Edward is no doubt one cryptic guy in Forks High School. A star volleyball player, he's hot, blunt, and popular, but there's something about him that goes much deeper than that. Then comes new student Bella Swan, shy and naive, who doesn't know what hits her until he takes her heart. It's a soft, tender, not-so-typical romance of two teenagers who want very different things.
