    I am so thoroughly surprised. But of those that you listed that I have read (only 5 of those), I wouldn’t put them in my top lists. I did really enjoy Nyxia though (and honestly am behind in my SJM books — bad fan!–)

    I love your reviews though, and look forward to those in 2018.

    **P.S. So jealous you got an ARC for American Panda as I was denied. Oh well, I still look forward to reading it too.
