    Join me as I talk about books, gush over authors, and occasionally give away stuff...

    FTC Disclosure:
    Books I review are either provided by the publisher or author, borrowed from the library, or purchased, and this is stated on each review. I am not paid for my reviews, they are a labor of love (or an addiction!). All links to IndieBound, Amazon, and The Book Depository are affiliate links, which means that if you happen to click on them and purchase something, I get a very miniscule percentage (i.e. I'm not quitting my day job anytime soon)...
