    1. So many books…so little time…

      I have to say that some of them I am not interested in checking it out for some time. I am still in the mood for mysteries and thrillers lately.

    1. Hi Erica!
      I like most of the list too. Some of the books have been on the best seller list for a long time for a good reason. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Cee Arr!
      I expected you to have some of the books on your TBR; you’re definitely more off the beaten path reader. 🙂
      For the life of me I don’t know how Darker made the list but I guess people are buying it and reading it.

      Thanks for stopping by!
