I read 13 books which are in your list, so I felt at home looking at your plan :D
Interesting choices so far :)

Jodez (jodez4) | 16 comments Making a couple of changes...

My book published this year will now be Alchemy: a story of perfect murder once my copy arrives, instead of Carry On

And the book by an author with my initials will now be Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff to align with another book club challenge, instead of The Complete Poems by John Keats
