  1. Hi, Bea! I'm glad you're doing the ARC Challenge, too. And we've both got Sheila Connolly books on our lists! (Mine's old, though - one of the ones I missed reading before the publication date.)

    Oh, and I just bought Beyond Belief, so I can't wait to see what you think of it. Good luck on the challenge!

    1. I need this challenge. :D I haven't read Connolly before but this looked so appealing. I saw you bought Beyond Belief, I hope we like it!

    2. Me too! And it will be my first time reading Connolly too.

  2. Good luck with the challenge, Bea!

  3. Good luck, Bea! I will put my post up later today.

  4. I am so glad you joined us. I hope you get everything read that you are planning on. Good luck!!

  5. Good luck with reaching your goals, Bea, and hope you enjoy all your books! :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let's talk!
