The book I decided to grab is All the Dangerous Things. I also grabbed the Book of the Year Winner, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin. This book was on my TBR, so I decided to grab it since I was able to get it for free with BOTM.

Thrillers have really been catching my attention recently and I have also seen Stacy Willingham’s name a couple times for different books, so I decided to give this one a shot. Have you read any books by Stacey Willingham? What were your thoughts? Suggestions?
