  1. I currently have A Good Girl's Guide to Murder on hold at the library. Hopefully, I can get to it soon and see if it's as good as everyone says.

  2. I'm obviously adding all of these to my TBR. I'd discovered Twilight of Avalon last year all thanks to you, so I already have good expectations from the other books on the list! ~Lex (lexlingua.co)

  4. My sister recommend A Good Girl's Guide to Murder to me, when I'd already seen it around and figured it would turn out to be over-hyped. But with her recommendation, I'll definitely be reading it soon and hope it's as good as people say!

  8. DAIRY QUEEN is a great pick for this topic. I wasn't so sure about it going into it because of the corny cover, but it's such a good book! I loved it.

    Happy TTT!

  9. The Fever King is one of those books that got a decent amount of hype but disappeared rather quickly in the world of fast-paced social media. Glad to see it made your list, makes me want to give it another look.

  12. I still have to read Holly's books! They seem like they'd be great reads and every now and then I do love a good mysterious book. :) Thanks so much for visiting my website last week, Lauren.
