message 3: by Addy (new)

Addy Several book were removed from the list by Valjeanne Jeffers because they were not of quality and were not published in 2013. One also was an audiobook, not an actual book (or ebook), so it was removed.

Addy The Living Blood (African Immortals, #2) by Tananarive Due was removed because it was not published in 2013. PLEASE ONLY ADD BOOKS PUBLISHED IN 2013!
