The Hearts We Sold – Emily Lloyd-Jones

“Nothing comes for free. We just don't know what it'll cost.” I can't believe it's taken me three months to write this review, but every time I sat down to attempt it, I just couldn't get the right words on paper.

I just can't seem to get attached … Continue reading Rosemarked – Livia Blackburne

Here We Are Now – Jasmine Warga (ARC Review)

This was actually a 3.5 star read for me, but the more I pondered it over the two-day span between … Continue reading Here We Are Now – Jasmine Warga (ARC Review)
