message 2: by Carole (new)

Carole I've just started re-reading Stillhouse Lake and will follow it up with Killman Creek in anticipation of Wolfhunter River coming out.

message 3: by Shaela (new)

Shaela loved Stillhouse Lake and Killman Creek!! Such a great read! I am so excited for Wolfhunter River.

Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* Nice header graphic for the article.

The Shatter Me series has some of the prettiest covers; haven't read them yet.

I liked Stillhouse Lake and the sequel was worthy enough, but I don't see how the story can keep reasonably continuing.

The rest I have zero interest in.

Amy the book-bat Crazy House was good and I am looking forward to the sequel. Also liked Stillhouse Lake and want to read the third book. Also wanting to pick up the Princess and the Fangirl since I liked Geekarella quite a bit. Intrigued by Aru Shah.
