You Will Know Me
by Megan Abbott
-Mystery, Thriller
Amazon | Goodreads | my review


  1. Neat-O! Love the theme of this tag. You picked some good book match-ups. I eventually want to read The Boys in the Boat.

    Yes, I do love the gymnastics, but also track & field and equestrian. Go USA!

  2. Oh yay, I love your choices!! I just looked at the Goodreads for A Little Life, and WOW, that is a long book! I really want to read Me Before You, but I am scared of the tears! Your Game of Thrones choice made me laugh, because SO true! You Know Me Well looks really good too.
