I'll do it as we read them, because I'm going to change them anyway for sure LOL


❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) :D I already have all mine picked out. I was going through my stash a couple of weeks ago and figured, just in case, I should put the ones aside that match WINTER. Otherwise I'd have ended up reading one I needed for it. lol I'll have to post them later though, as I'm supposed to be 'working' at the moment and don't have them handy.

Well, I only have chosen one, and it will be useful for this challenge and the ABC challenge, because it's published on Dec, 28th: In Too Deep (I don't know if I'll be able to wait till Jan, 1st LOL ). It's romance, but suspense too. And sorry, JAK is a must for me so...

Carol, you can use the first letter of the author's first or last name. That gives you a little more leeway. ;)
