Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny
Last to Die by Tess Gerritsen

Unwholly by Neal Schusterman



  1. I have read Louise Penny and Tess Gerritsen. I love medical mysteries but most tend to be forensic mysteries like Gerritsen's. I usually only read forensic stories by Kathy Reichs and Tess Gerritsen. They are the best in their sub-genre.

    1. I have got to read Kathy Reichs one of these days, Violette. Thanks for reminding me.

  2. Great list! :) :) Hope you're having fun today! Enjoy aBEA!

    PS. Turn off your captcha for this week, please. People will comment easier ;) ;)

  3. I want to read Emma! I have yet to read a Jane Austin novel.

    1. I had only read Pride and Prejudice, Ariel. My daughter was reading Emma, so I thought it was a good time to try another one.

  4. There is SHOCKING news in the sports betting world.
