I'm glad to have a visitor. How about these?

The Clockmaker's Daughter - I want to read this too.
The Night Bird - Sounds intriguing.
Bridge of Clay - I've heard mixed reviews, though I loved The Book Thief and I Am the Messenger.

I've got to read The Night Bird by the end of the month for Wheel of Bookshelves, so I'll go with that one. I have the other two on hold at the library too. Great picks!

Can I please have couple of picks from my shelf?
Thanks! ☺

Here's a few to choose from.

The Ship of the Dead
The White Queen
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

❀Tea❀ (ttea) | 543 comments Thanks, those are great picks. I'm still not sure which one I'll go with. Still have few books before to finish, so I'll come back with my choice when I'm closer to picking one up (in about a week?)

For now I'm siding with Riordan's The Ship of the Dead as I just finished previous book in series and want to see how it continues


Edit:
I'm changing book and going to read The White Queen

The Deal of a Lifetime by Fredrik Backman
The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah
One Summer by Karen Robards


message 14: by Marina (new)

Marina (sonnenbarke) | 1399 comments Thanks, Ashley! Hard to choose! I'll probably read The Dunwich Horror but I need to think about it a bit.

I almost typed "third time's the charm" in my post last night...GMTA. I'll go with The Drowning since it's available for download on audio and it fits Serial '19. Thanks, Ashley!

Welcome, Bea. It's always nice to have new visitors. Since today is my sister's birthday, I'll use some of her favorites for ideas.

The Map of True Places - blue cover since that's her favorite color
The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse - #2 on your list because that's her favorite number
