  1. That is a high recommendation from you for Pretty Girls. I bought 17 books at a book sale to benefit the public libraries. Help! I am giving that many to the little free libraries in our neighborhood.

  8. I hadn't heard of Karin Slaughter, but I'll definitely check her out now. I've also been curious about When I Was the Greatest, with that crocheted gun on the cover.

  9. I liked Pretty Girls too and it will most likely be on my favorite of 2016 list. Medieval Times is so much fun!
