  8. I also think the Icelandic mystery sounds good. Did you ever watch the Icelandic police/detective series Trapped? It was pretty good. A bit dark though! Happy Easter.

  10. These both sound like interesting books. I hope you enjoy them. I'm currently reading Dread Nation by Justina Ireland. I hope to finish it today and then start Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco.

    I hope you have a great week!
