Ten Of My Most Recent 5 Stair Reads

(Ok, you got me. The topic is actually 5 Stars. But we do stairs here at Hidden Staircase.)

About six or so months ago I started pulling a favorite quote (or two) from the book into a graphic for my reviews when possible. I had quotes for eight of these books, so here they are again. Enjoy!

  1. When did you have time to read with your road trip? I have read and loved Michael Connelly’s The Crossing ( he’s my favorite author); I have also read Double Indemnity and liked it, and I thought The Girl on the Train to be wonderfully written and a fabulous read. I would like to read The Light We Cannot See.


  2. What a great list, Kristi! So many of these are in my TBR pile (All the Light We Cannot See, Aristotle and Dante, and The Rosie Project being the top three) so I’m so happy you approve of them. Great selection of quotes as well! 🙂


Sit down and share a cuppa with me. Let's discuss.
