Challenge Complete: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins - loved it! I was actually surprised to see so many people didn't like it.

Elizabeth Turlington | 12 comments Challenge Complete: I read “The Wolf Gift” by Anne Rice. Great read, Anne Rice never disappoints for a good creature feature!

Cecil Huston | 116 comments Challenge complete! finished The Beekeeper by Juliet Moore. Not the best detective story I’ve read, but did have an interesting take on using bees and honey as part of the murder plot. Ready for next month’s challenge!
