  1. OMG! My TBR is hemorrhaging! WOLF is at the top of my must read list along with Brian Freeman's latest, so excited to get back to both of those series. There are a ton of these others in my list as well.

  2. I really like this! It is like going to a bookstore and browsing through the shelves where I can indulge my self with a favorite pastime - choosing a book by its cover. I am drawn to Every Hidden Fear, The Frangipani Hotel, Love and Treasure and One Night in Winter.
