    WOW! This collection of books looks so much like my kindle wish list! I would love to read, feel and smell all of those pages. The genre I like to read the most is mystery/romance/family/real life all mixed into one book. I know I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but looking at these eight books, I know I would love them all and I would promise to give them a good home.

    • Laura Spinella on October 20, 2017 at 5:44 pm

      Good luck, Kristy! Please note it’s one winner for each book, so eight winners total! Have a great weekend!

    I have several of the books pictured above on my Amazon wishlist or my Goodreads ‘to read’ shelf. Would be happy to receive any of them.

    • Laura Spinella on October 21, 2017 at 9:53 am
