20th Victim by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro A Mystery/Thriller, 2020 by Little Brown, 432 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: A few grammatical errors and continuity errors jumped out at me while I was reading.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas YA Fantasy, 2012 by Publisher, 406 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Character development is not original.
