Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Great list, Kris. I've been eyeing The Invisible Guardian myself so I'll be interested to see what you have to say about it if you get to it this month.

Thank you, Jonetta! <3 I can see what you meant by Anderson. I have a few of her other books that I got as freebies and so glad I collected (thanks to you of course)

You are too sweet, Stephanie! I can't wait to read your thoughts on The Clearing. I am also reading and reviewing his standalone novel The 7th Canon

Thank you, Veronica <3 I think I've renewed it for the last time at the library so probably will read this month lol. Keep you posted.

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments LOL, I've done the multiple renewals at the library thing too.

That is usually what gets me to read the book finally, and not get distracted by other shiny covers, lol.

Mary Beth  | 974 comments I read Rubbernecker and really loved it! I gave it 5 stars Kris!


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Yes, I saw that and that is what made me try it. I am listening to it in my car so don't get too much time with it. But SO interesting

I also have Cold Light of Day and would love to join in the Buddy Read when you get to it :0)


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Please do, Lauren! We are thinking later this month.


message 23: by Joi (new)

Joi | 27 comments I'm glad I'm not the only one with a lot of library books checked out.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Lol! Yay, glad to know I'm not the only one either.


message 25: by Mary Beth (new)

Mary Beth  | 974 comments I hope you love Rubbernecker as much as I did. One good thing that I love about this group is that we all find good books from each other and good series.
Oh my gosh! I have tons of books checked out! I love Overdrive because that way they return the book for me and I dont have to worry about fines.
Lauren glad that you are joining us for Cold Light of Day!


message 26: by Veronica (new)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 1631 comments Right now I have nine books checked out (three each from three different libraries). In spite of that I keep reading books I already own. It's insane! I definitely need more self-control.

Woot woot!


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Working at a library is dangerous for someone like me, lol. It's gotten to the point when the new cart of books come in...they all try to guess how many will be mine.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2416 comments Omg, Stephanie it is SO bad. I read almost anything too so it doesn't take much to get me attracted lol.
