message 3: by Kayla (new)

Kayla Jorgensen These books don't really tickle my fancy. That being said, I'll probably take a chance on one or two of them. I just took a chance on another book called Nomad's Island by author Derek E. Keeling. It's not really the genre I like, but I took a chance and was BLOWN AWAY! It was an amazing book, filled with adventure, romance, suspense, and some twists that I didn't see coming. So, I have learned my lesson. I will be taking chances on other books that I don't normally go for. Hmm...which one first? :) <3

nitya The Tiger at Midnight ❤️❤️❤️❤️


message 8: by Natasha (new)

Natasha Niezgoda The Mother-In-Law is TERRIFIC! I gave it 5 stars! It's more a family drama with thriller undertones than an all-out thriller. And it's soooo well done!

Jacqueline Mudge-Cooke The Tiger at Midnight! Finally!

Cem Nouri I Know Who You Are by Alice Feeney catches my eye.
