Cat’s Picks:

The Removed – The Removed by Brandon Hobson is marketed as a contemporary fiction novel that weaves together Cherokee myths, history, and family dilemmas all into one intense yet rich read. Combine that with the fact that it has a decent rating on Goodreads, and it was enough to catch my attention. Click HERE to read Cat’s review!

The Survivors – The Survivors released back in September of 2020, and yet I only heard of it recently. It’s a mystery by an author I adore (Jane Harper), and follows one character – and the mistake that haunts him to this day. Click HERE to read a buddy review by Cat and Allyson!

Things in Jars – Things in Jars is not one of the five options listed for January, but it is an add on that I’ve been meaning to grab for some time now! Written by Jess Kidd, it’s a blend of mystery and historical fiction, and follows a female detective named Bridie Devine.

Allyson’s Picks:

The Survivors – I have been on a bit of a mystery kick lately! So it is no surprise I choose The Survivors for my book of the month this month. Kieran Elliots returns to the coastal town he grew up in when a body is found on the beach. This is described as a creepy slow-building mystery which sounds like exactly what I’m in the mood for. This will be my first book by Jane Harper, but I have heard so many good things about her writing. Click HERE to read a buddy review by Cat and Allyson!

    I thought of getting The Survivors, but I decided to just skip January. Nothing really jumped out. I’ll be curious to see what February holds!
