What we're reading in TLS this week:

In TLS this week, we've been discussing fics that stayed with us and made us cry. We've also discovered some new fics that are starting out with lots of promise. Some old, some new, but all enjoyable and memorable. Make some memories with us and take a peek at these gems. We have some great recs for you! Please let the authors know where you saw them recommended and leave them some love!

♥ Nic & Six

Awake in the Infinite Cold by Quothme-rec'd by Katinki
Sometimes the fruit is forbidden for a reason. A mélange of Twilight and How to Be, with an Artward who so carefully and so softly sneaks under her skin and into her soul.
Rated M

Cracks in the Pavement by VampiresHaveLaws-rec'd by MoniNP
Life is never perfect, the cracks always appear. "My Polaroid would show the face of a girl who has forgotten how to truly smile." Even the strongest of dreams can fail to become enough. Rated M

Delay of Game by AudreyS17-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
Bella really let one get past the goalie this time. Finding out she's pregnant with a pro hockey player's baby after a one-night stand was really not how Bella pictured her life like. Follow as Bella and Edward attempt to navigate this adventure and get to know each other in the process. Rated M

Designated Hitter by Esmegrace-rec'd by Evilant
Orthopedic surgeon, Bella Swan encounters the last person she ever expected to see again on Valentine's Day no less. Can she remain professional with Major League pitcher, Edward Masen, given their pasts? Rated M

Good Times at Masen's by Isannah-rec'd by Nic
Good drinks, good food, and good company. That's what makes Good Times the place to be. What happens when Bella Swan offers owner Edward Masen more? Rated M

Goodbye Peter Pan by Bled Dry-rec'd by Everyfreakingbody!
Prompted by a feeling, Alice leads the Cullens back to Forks, but ten years is a long time in a brief human life. Edward's wish for Bella to have a nice human life seems to have been fulfilled. Bella believes that once she loved a remarkable boy, but in the end he didn't love her. Can Edward convince her she is wrong? Rated M

Goodnight, Noises Everywhere by Feisty Y. Beden-rec'd by Edmazing
Bella is the only survivor of a virus which has killed off the human race. Is there anyone-anything-still alive on this dying planet? Rated M

Grand Jete by Stella luna sky-rec'd by Nic
Bella's life is full of certainty and boredom. A dance instructor without passion, she has no idea that the handsome man in her night class will teach her how every moment could be her big moment, and how every breath could be the last. Rated M

Indelible by Bannerday-rec'd by Nic
Some experiences, some people, stick with you forever, leaving their mark on your memories. You can't escape what they meant to you and you can't re-write the past. It's indelible. But the future isn't set in stone…it's yours to write. A story about forks in the road of life and a past with a future. Rated M

Key West by Pattyrose-rec'd by Nic/Sixdlb5
Bella is 5 minutes away from what's to be her happiest day - when a phone call changes it all. Frustrated and pissed-off, she embarks on a 10 day vacay to Key West, hoping for some space in which to clear her head, but when she meets the cocky, flirty and sexy-as-sin diving instructor, her plans take a much steamier turn. Rated M

Little Plastic Castle by Lawn Girl-rec'd by Jaime Arkin
Even the best built castles sometimes fall. In a coffee shop, in a city...two people struggle to remember how to put those pieces back together. Rated M

Strange Ingenue by PuppetStrings19-rec'd by Cappricorn75
Opposites attract, even in college. To say their story is easy to tell would be a lie, cause where's the fun in that? Their story is somewhat of a slow burn, but there will definitely be some fun along the way.Rated M

Summer Heat by Maplestyle-rec'd by Layathomemom
She is the devil disguised as an angel and I want to be a sinner so bad. A birthday one shot for Kni, has grown into a collection of birthday one shots! Rated M

The Babysitter by Plummy-rec'd by VampsHaveLaws
Everybody said Rose was perfect for me, and this weekend I was going to find out if it was true. That was the plan, until I met her sister. Rated M

The Blue Hour by Mortissues-rec'd by Edmazing
The blue hour is the period of twilight each morning and evening when indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue hue. That afternoon, in the forest, Bella sees through Edward's act and so he stays. He was never likely to get very far anyway, the shy human girl owned him body and soul. That was a few years ago now and that shy human girl has just graduated college . Rated M

The Hole Shot by Foreveraddicted-rec'd by Nic
Bella Swan still woke up everyday. She went to work. She went out with her boyfriend. She kept breathing. Kept moving. But her heart? It doesn't beat, doesn't feel anything but pain. Anything but that hole that Edward Cullen left there five years ago. Rated M

Those who sparkle by Dayzeco-rec'd by Nic
I never looked at Edward Cullen the way he looked at me. His eyes rolled past while mine danced. I never felt for Edward Cullen the way I should have. He pretended I wasn't there while I just pretended. Rated M

Unrequited by Perry Maxwell-rec'd by MoniNp
Edward left Bella almost a year ago, upending her whole world. What happens when Bella receives a phone call that just might shatter it? "Wait, Alice…Edward is dying?" I choked out. Rated M

Until You're Mine by OdysseyAvis-rec'd by Nic
Bella is enrolled at the University of Washington in Seattle. Alice convinces her to go on a date with a pro football player who, at the start of everything, seems to be an utterly annoying idiot. But with him he brings some unlikely crossroads that will help Bella find what she's never been searching for but always needed. Rated M

Watch Me Burn by Livie79-rec'd by Sixdlb5/Nic
There were a lot of words to describe my relationship with Bella Swan. I just never imagine that "over" would be one of them. Entry for TLS Angst Contest. Rated M

  1. "Cracks in the Pavement" was so heartbreaking. But definitely worth the read. I'm currently reading "Key West" and LOVING it!
