  1. Wow Fanna, what an amazing list! Thank you for sharing. The Gilded Wolves, Tell Me How You Really Feel, There’s Something About Sweetie and Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali were already on my TBR but thanks for putting the rest under my radar. Added these all to my infinite TBR 😀 I am particularly interested about that Mehendi book. I loved the title 😛
