  1. I don’t know if Cress is on my top 10 list but it was a fantastic read. Their Eyes Were Watching God is definitely on the list since I reread it earlier this year. I’m going to try hard to read War of Art this summer. If you enjoyed it, I know I will too. 🙂

    • I’m reading Blameless, Book 3. I thought the series was 4 books, but, you’re right, there’s 5! I’m reading it on my phone which is usually the slowest book I have going, so this will take a while.
