    Wow, Beckie! You’ve reviewed quite a few of these. Somehow, the only one on this list I’ve already read is A Broken Kind of Beautiful (which I loved). My reading wish list just keeps growing! 🙂

      My list is growing too! Thief of Glory is on my book club’s list this year. And a couple more are on my shelves. But that still leaves a lot more reading! Every time I get the pile to a manageable amount, more books call my name. Now I am looking forward to Inspy reading. Waiting impatiently for the finalists to be announced.

        Yes! I’m eager for that announcement too. I’ve been looking at the list of nominees trying to guess which ones will make it to the shortlists. So many good possibilities!
