Thanks for the fun prompt!
All the prompts are Tanya and Kim’s ideas 🙂 Glad you could join in!
Yes – We both listed The Mother In Law! So excited for this month of blogging with you all!
YAY!!!!! I am SO excited to see all your posts!
I completely agree with you on An Anonymous Girl and The Mother-In-Law, both great books, worthy of all their hype. Things You Save In a Fire also showed up on my list, but in the books that didn’t deserve the hype category!
Oh wow!!!!! You are like the first person I know who did not love Things You Save in a Fire!!!!
I know so many people who didn’t like Things You Save In A Fire. However, I am not one of them but maybe I went into it with low expectations because I’d heard so many people dis it.
I so wish my library carried Kristy Woodson Harvey. I have heard so many good things about her books.
She is a FABULOUS author. Her next book, Feels Like Falling, is being given away on Goodreads till like Dec 8/9th (i forget which date it ends!)
Another reader of An Anonymous Girl here – I liked the book – but didn’t you think she was a tad clueless – I felt like screaming at her sometimes!
Oh yes- sometimes I had to scream at her in the book!
Ooh, I’ve not yet gotten to Megan Miranda’s latest and I really should! I’ve loved all her previous books 🙂
YOU GOT TO GET TO IT. SO. DARN. GOOD.
Anonymous Girl was worth the hype. I didn’t love Escape Room, though.
One book that would be on my list — The Silent Patient!
I think I loved The Escape Room because it had a campy/soapy feel at times. I still have not read The Silent Patient!
I love Katherine Center, and I don’t know why I haven’t read her latest yet! Thanks for the reminder.
Happy to remind you 🙂
