Book Bonanza 2019 part 2- Angstiest Book Recommendations

Thank goodness my voice over skills are better than my photography skills or I’d be needing to find a new career.  I’ve included a photo here of the Angst Nation panel and let me apologize in advance to the panelists who all looked far better than my pixelated long-distance shot from the back of the meeting room.    (Left to right in the photo Jewel E Ann, Kennedy Ryan, Claire Contreras, Mia Asher, Caroline Kepnes, Kandi Steiner, KA Linde and Brittainy C. Cherry).

I did my best to jot down the list of these panelists’ recommendations for those interested in experiencing more emotional roller coaster rides in book or audio book form.

Could this serve as a good TBR (to be read) list for you?  Or maybe you have some recommendations of your own you’d like to share. Comment below to help fellow angst fans find a new gem to ride the rollercoaster of agony and ecstasy.

For my recommendation, I’d say check out the social media channels of these great panelists (I’ll provide those in the next blog post because this one has too many links in it already) and stay tuned for my next post about how they know their books are meeting the standards of success they’ve set for themselves.
