This is How it Happened – Paula Stokes (ARC Review)

“Where does seeking justice end and seeking vengeance begin?” I really enjoy books that offer a unique social commentary, especially when it’s relevant to modern times, so I jumped at the chance to read this book.

Daughter of the Burning City – Amanda Foody (ARC Review)

Girl Out of Water – Laura Silverman (ARC Review)

There are some unmarked spoilers, but it's not really the kind of book where anything is a "twist", so... continue at your own discretion? I honestly tried to salvage my thoughts into something USEFUL, but this review would be better described as a rant.
