First I must say thank you to Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, as well as Edelweiss, for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  I have the first two in the series in actual physical ARCs, and I had emailed the name on the back of them to ask to get on a list to […]

Thanks to Thomas Nelson publishing and Netgalley for allowing me to read an e-galley of this, even though it was actually published earlier this year.  This was my #8 for my 2nd Annual September is for Sequels Challenge, meaning that even if I finish the book I’m currently reading, I won’t have read any more […]

This is only my 6th book I’ve read for my September is for Sequels Challenge, out of the 12 I had hoped to read.  🙁  I think, I guess that I will be happy if I meet my same amount that I read last year, which was 8.  It just seems that September gets so […]

Books from a century or […]
