Monday madness calls for sharing my latest library loot with all of you. It was a long day at work where the thought of curling up with a book helped me get through!

I didn‘t actually go to the library today - these are from this past weekend‘s trip. Have you read any of these? Have thoughts you want to share? I‘m hoping to curl up with a few of these before the new year!

I really enjoyed this thrilling read although there was just something missing to bump it up to a five star read. It was an intense reading experience though that took all of my self control not to peek at the ending. I‘m looking forward to reading more by this author! 4.5 stars!

What a great read! This is my 1st book by Moriarty but it definitely won‘t be my last. I felt like I flew through the pages and this isn‘t a short read by any means. I just couldn‘t get enough of these characters and HAD to see how it would all turn out!
