J. N. I find it suspicious that only 33 people on goodreads have read the tarnished shooter book at the top of this list and yet 32 have voted for it on this list.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yeah, I don't buy that, either.

I noticed you've added your book to this Listopia (#64) as well as to quite a few other lists. Don't promote your own work this way! It's against Goodreads policy to do so.

Looking at the later pages of this list I think most of them were probably added by the authors (books with fewer than 50 reviews).


Lavoie Lianne (The Towering Pile) I removed Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac from the list because it is fiction. I suspect someone added it because it has "memoirs" in the title.
