  1. Ooh I hadn't heard of Harrow Lake but that sounds amazing. I want to read The Night Swim, and Home Before Dark was SO good.

    My TTT .

  5. Harrow Lake and The Shadows are two I really want to read, too. :)

  6. So The Only Good Indians is one of my and Stormi's buddy reads this month. I finished it in 2 days and loved it. She is struggling and I thought she might. I can't wait to get my hands on Harrow Lake. For some reason it's just screaming at me!

    Happy TTT!
