      Hi Kyrene,
      Thank you.
      We haven’t read that series and as this is a recommendation list of books we’ve both read, we couldn’t include them in this list. We can’t recommend books we haven’t read.
      We will check this series out though to add to our TBR’s.
      xo

    What a fantastic list. I’d love to see Pepper Winters’ “Monsters in the Dark” series. My reading alphabet must include Q.

      Hi there Dana,
      We had started that series but unfortunately someone was posting updates on Goodreads and they posted a big spoiler. We hate spoilers, we’re all about the surprise so we couldn’t continue. We were gutted. <3
