  • Finally… reveal the book!

So here are 10 of my favorite books released in the last 10 years! Continue reading

Game of Thrones | Book Tag

Another Sunday, another book tag.

I’ve done this tag once before about 2 years ago, but I felt like a revisist was necessary to close out the end of an era! I’m going to try and choose different books/answers so it’s not a total repeat.  Continue reading
