Alexa S. - I’m Glad I Did sounds pretty delightful, and that cover is great! I love that you said it would make a stage musical; that totally makes me want to read it even more.

Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit - YES. OMG, it would be perfect as a musical. That mystery…and the characters. Perfect.

Emma @ Miss Print - This book is one that totally slipped my radar. I heard about it around BEA time last year, assumed it was published since then and forgot about it. I was surprised to realize it was still waiting for its release date. This sounds like an interesting historical though. Thanks for the review!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve been curious about I’m Glad I Did. I’m glad that you liked this, and I will definitely be looking for it at the library. The set up sort of reminded me of Beautiful, which I saw this summer.
