It’s not often that I find a book I am willing to recommend to others as a must read. But for those moments when I do, I really want to go out of my way to recommend them to fellow bookworms who may be in need of something new to read. My choices always come those books that receive four or five stars from the month prior. For the past few weeks, you guys have been voting for which book should be featured. There were a lot of fantastic books up for this feature and there were so many of you who clearly loved several of them. I’m pleased to share that this month’s featured book is Mug Shot by Caroline Fardig.

Trust me when I say, if you are looking for something to spice up your reading list, this is the book for you. It’s a great coming of age tale that is full of drama and suspense and I look forward to getting the opportunity to read the other books from this author.
Please feel free to let me know what you think about this book!
