Monthly Recommendations March 2016: Stand-Alone Novels

This month’s topic is Stand-Alones, and I have had a hard time narrowing this down.  So today, I scrapped every list I’ve made and quickly went through my physical shelves (except for the Laura Frantz book, which needs to be there) for a few stand-alones that I would recommend but I perceive as being less well known, even if that just means they are less well known than other books by the same author.  In the case of the Jasper Fforde recommendation, I am considering it a stand-alone until the promised follow-ups to this 2009 book are scheduled to be released – partly so I do not become frustrated having to wait, and wait, and wait…

Monthly Recommendations is a GoodReads group of bloggers and YouTube content creators started by Kayla of Kayla Raines and Trina from Between Chapters.  I just noticed that the March theme will be Stand-Alone Novels, which means I may just have to recommend The Scavengers two months in a row!
