If you’ve read any of these books, would you recommend them?


  1. I thoroughly enjoyed BOOKSHOPS AND BONEDUST – it made me pick up LEGENDS AND LATTES

  2. Riley Sager’s was an excellent book! Have a good day 😊

  3. I am a chicken when it comes to thrillers but also a sucker for Stephen King books! I haven’t read Holly yet but it sounds good 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten Tuesday

  4. I haven’t read The Love Match, but it looks really cute and I’ve heard good things about it. I did read Bookshops & Bonedust, and love it! That was a really fun cozy fantasy, and if that is your kind of book I would highly recommend it.

    Here’s my TTT this week. Happy reading!

  5. I see so many raves for the Travis Baldree series. I need to give it a try soon. Hope you enjoy these as you get to them!

  6. Tom Lake is lovely, I’d definitely recommend that one.

  7. I still need to get to Bookshops and Bonedust and The Only One Left too. Hope you’ll love all of these!

  8. I read and enjoyed The secret book of Flora Lee.

  9. I enjoyed Secret Book of Flora Lee. I hope you do as we!l!

  10. Looks like an interesting assortment. I have not read any of them, but have seen most of them around. Have a great rest of your week.

  11. I haven’t read Tom Lake yet, either. Hope you get a chance to read these this year.

  12. Fun to see Tom Lake on your list, too.
    Happy reading in 2024!

  13. This sounds like a great list. I hope you enjoy them all when you get to them. Thanks for stopping by my blog. 😀

  14. Family Lore was a good one. I hope you enjoy these!

  15. Family Lore was a dnf for me. Love Match looks good. And, who doesn’t need more organizing tips these days? I’d love to see that one!

  16. Organizing for the Rest of Us sounds like a book I definitely need! Hope you enjoy your reads this year!

  17. Bookshops and Bonedust is one that I pre-ordered and have yet to read it! I hope you enjoy all these!!

  18. “Holly” was ok. Different from his other books. “Family Lore” was pretty good, kind of unusual.

  19. Ooh nice ones! These are all new to me ones! Mostly totally new but I do recognize Bookshops & Bonedust and Stephen King of course! Hope you’re able to read all of these this year!

    Thanks for visiting my TTT!

  20. I really want to read Family Lore and Tom Lake! I’m curious about Bookshops and Bonedust – I liked the first one.

  21. Bookshops! I need to get it…

  22. Ahh, I liked Bookshops & Bonedust. Maybe not quite as much as Legends & Lattes, but I still thought it was a lot of fun. Hope you enjoy all these when you get chance to read them!

  23. I thoroughly enjoyed “Holly” and “The Only One Left” – hope you get the chance to enjoy them, too.

  24. The Only One Left is a great read! I also want to read Bookshops & Bonedust. Hope you get to read these soon. 😀

  25. I really loved The Only One Left, especially since The House Across the Lake was disappointing. It was a top read for me in 2023. Hope you love all of these!

  26. A good looking list. I had so many books it was hard to pick just 10!

    I want to read The Only One Left. I keep seeing it around.

    Have a great week!

  27. I haven’t read any of these, but I’d like to listen to the audio of Tom Lake as Meryl Streep reads it!

  28. THE ONLY ONE LEFT is deranged, but it definitely kept me reading! It’s not my favorite Sager. I hope you enjoy it and all these others when you get to them.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!


  29. I loved The Secret Book of Flora Lea!

  30. I loved Holly so, so, so much! I hope you read that soon and that you love it!

  31. I want to read Travis Baldreee, his books sounds so cozy

  32. I see Riley’s book a lot of places but haven’t ever read one of them. Maybe someday because every now and then I do love a good mystery! 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting my website on this week.

  33. Great list! I liked Bookshops and Bonedust, but it didn’t have the same oomph as Legends and Lattes for me. And I did like Family Lore, but I’m a huge Elizabeth Acevedo fan. You’ve got a bunch of books pulled right from my TBR on here too! And I’ve heard great things about Holly from my friend who adores Stephen King. Hope you love all of these when you get to them!
