read fast-paced novels

A guide by Natasha (Seattle)

Products sampled from this guide:
I love fast-paced mystery novels. One of my favorite activities is to find a great book, and finish it from start to end without stopping. I'm in a book club and enjoy our discussions, but it's hard for us who all have busy schedules to finish books on the same schedule. Lately we've been sticking to really fast-paced, exciting, often mystery, novels so we can stay on top of our readings. I've included some of my favorite fast-paced novels and a few that I've recently read with my book club
