  1. I love seeing lots of books I’ve never heard about!

    We have White Smoke in common. The premise and cover are hard to resist <3

    I think I've just got Finlay Donovan is Killing It on the brain but
    For the Love of Friends is reminding me so much of it so I am instantly intrigued! And oooh! Never Saw Me Coming sounds so cool. I love books with a psychological aspect.
