Sorry Kelsi, have been AWOL from the site this week. I have all 4 books so any of the reads will work. My 2 top choices would be The Dovekeepers or And then there were none.

Sorry Kelsi, ..."


I've owned And Then There Were None for awhile now and haven't been able to get to it, so it's about time. Sound good?

Kris (kmell33) Sounds great.

Kara (karaayako) | 3977 comments Great books, everyone! I'm really looking forward to hearing what you all think of them.


message 15: by Kara (new)

Kara (karaayako) | 3977 comments How are you all doing on your books? What do you think of them?


message 16: by NayNay (new)

NayNay I'll Walk Alone by Mary Higgins Clark Well Ashley and I agreed on all aspects of the book. Both being fans of Mary Higgins Clark we also agreed it was not one of her better one's. But I did enjoy the book, giving it 4 stars and Ashley giving it 3.5 stars.

mussolet (sovotchka) | 615 comments Fell4 and I were both a bit underwhelmed by Mairelon the Magician, as we have thought it would be better. It was rather slow, and there was a lot of talking. Fell4 has already given it two stars; I'm withholding my rating as I have the omnibus edition and still need to read Magician's Ward. I don't think it will go beyond three though.


message 18: by Ashley (new)

Ashley Kempkes (ashleykempkes) While I was rather disappointed with this book, I still love the author and am going to try and read the next book some time. AS SilverRaindrops said, mystery's do not seem this authors forte.
