    Here's my Tuesday post.

  2. Oh yes, I'm curious and have this on my TBR list. Hope it's a good one.

  3. Sounds interesting, but I'll read the synopsis and then decide.

  4. I like the cover, but it isn't something I'd normally read.

  5. I'm pretty sure I have this one around here somewhere. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
