Book tastes

I like a wide variety of books. I mostly read realistic fiction or nonfiction about psychology or science. I like historical fiction and classics too. The books I loved most that I read this year were Pachinko and 11/22/63. I’m currently reading Scythe by Neal Shusterman and An American Marriage by Tayari Jones.

Don't get this!

Secret Santa

3njennn's Secret Santa is Jillian_Kay. Help Jillian_Kay pick the right book.


Jillian_Kay: Happy Holidays! I hope you like them!

The Gamache series is my very favorite, and saw the other one on your TBR and thought it sounded interesting. (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 13:47:10 -0500)

lorannen: Removed Still Life (B001OLRMZA)—it's in both 3njennn's "Wishlist" and "Your Library" collections, so I'm concerned they already have this one. Also removed Awkward (B01GCCT3DE), that's definitely already in their library.
