Благодаря ти, мила. :kiss: Ще ги добавя веднага. Ако не се лъжа последните четири са издавани от Коломбина, но не им знаех англ. заглавия. За поредичката по-горе, първоначално я бях сложила, но я изтрих понеже забелязах, че книгите присъстват и в SUSPENCE поредицата, съответно като 3, 4 и 9 поред. Не се сетих да направя като при Бренда Джойс, където също има едни и същи книги в повече поредици. Но сега ще го направя така. Още веднъж благодаря. ;)
