Review: The Elizas by Sara Shepard

So, I clearly got approved for a lot of thrillers/mysteries on Netgalley lately, judging from my reviews this week.

Eventually, war began amongst them again and our … Continue reading Review: Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman

Romance Review: An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole

Recently, as in December 2017, I started picking up romance books again. I wanted something fun and light and I just adore the way romance novels make me feel all gooey and warm inside. For the month of February, I'm also trying to read more black authors (if not all black authors) for the February … Continue reading Romance Review: An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole
