    1. Hi Beth, I really enjoyed it. I think you're also going to appear on my Top Ten Tuesday meme this week for authors who deserve more recognition. Hope you don't mind :)

  2. I enjoyed taking part in this Sam, glad you did too. It's nice to look back and think about what you've read isn't it. I enjoyed reading your choices. There are a few I've read, some on my tbr, and some for me to look into!
