  4. I read My Cousin Rachel for an earlier spin – it was a great read – disturbing and fascinating. Good to read it before the movie comes out too 🙂

  6. Oh this is one of those lists that makes me feel woefully underread–I haven’t read a single title here. I do have a couple on my master CC list though. Whichever you get, I hope you love it. Good luck!
