Try it Tuesday (3)

'Try it Tuesday' is a weekly meme hosted here at Bookaholics where each week me and Ninfa take turns to recommend a book we think you should try and why.
If you'd like to join in, make a post of your own and put it in the linky :)

This weeks pick is:

A need so beautiful by Suzanne Young
A need so beautiful book one.
We all want to be remembered. Charlotte's destiny is to be Forgotten...
Charlotte’s best friend thinks Charlotte might be psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she’s cheating on him. But Charlotte knows what’s really wrong: She is one of the Forgotten, a kind of angel on earth, who feels the Need—a powerful, uncontrollable draw to help someone, usually a stranger.
But Charlotte never wanted this responsibility. What she wants is to help her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend's arms forever. But as the Need grows stronger, it begins to take a dangerous toll on Charlotte. And who she was, is, and will become--her mark on this earth, her very existence--is in jeopardy of disappearing completely.
Charlotte will be forced to choose: Should she embrace her fate as a Forgotten, a fate that promises to rip her from the lives of those she loves forever? Or is she willing to fight against her destiny--no matter how dark the consequences.

Why I'm choosing this book:
I'd seen this book around but was never bothered by it, I ended up getting it completely by chance when I was looking for a new audio book and the pickings were slim. Turns out I'm so glad I did! I loved it so much and ended up staying up until midnight cleaning my kitchen so I could listen to the end of it, I seriously need to get myself a hardback copy for a re-read!

Five reasons I love this book:
1. It's absolutely heartbreaking.
2. It's beautifully written, full of emotion.
3. It's not like something I've read before.
4. A strong female lead, who struggles with what she wants and what is the right thing to do.
5. I couldn't guess at what would happen in the end.

Who I think will love this book
I think fans of contemporary books will love this one, though I guess you could consider it paranormal, it has way more than that to it. People who like to be taken on an emotional ride and read beautiful books should eat it up. I don't read many books like this so I'm not sure what I'd compare it to, maybe because it's in a league of it's own.

I hope this encourages you to pick it up and if you do,
Let me know what you think!
