Only one this month...

1. No One Else Can Have You by Kathleen Hale 


This year Novel Heartbeat is co-hosting with Writer Grrrl Reads and they are assigning a point system based on whether you read a novella, a sequel or finish a whole series.  Here are some sequels I am hoping to get to this year.  I will update too as I discover new series or decide not to finish a series.
