WRAP UP: March and April 2017

March and April were very slow reading months for me. Because I had finals and term papers due from the end of March to the end of April, reading had to be put on the back burner. However, I did manage to finish a fair number of books. Full reviews for all of the books… Continue reading WRAP UP: March and April 2017

Review: Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

I have so many emotions when it comes to this one. I absolutely adore this series and basically everything Richelle writes, if I'm being completely honest.

Review: Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

I was so hesitant about starting this book. I was afraid I wouldn't like it as much as The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices...but HOLY MOLY I WAS WRONG!!!
