    1. Nice haul, Destiny! I quite using KU as I never got to read all the books and thus I felt it wasn’t worth it for me… I might sign up again in the future, though. I’ve seen Get a Life Chloe Brown on many blogs this weekend – I’ll see what people think of it before I check it out myself.
      Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

Say hello! ♥
