Beth @ Pages and Margins said...

What a great challenge! Thanks for sharing at the LMM Link-up!

Kathryn T said...

What an impressive list of books from your TBR. I like Tavia Gilbert as a narrator so much check out the one she narrates. I read the Little Paris Bookshop but not sure what it would be like on audio - I liked it though reading it.

Faith Hope and Cherrytea said...

Will do, Elizabeth - Thanks!

You're welcome, Beth - thanks for stopping by :)

Several other audios were Tavia's narration as well, Kathryn - glad to see you here at FHC - Thanks for stopping in...
