Book Review: Cress

April 18, 2015 book review, Pixie 0 ★★★★½

I gave this book another high rating–something I’ve found myself doing a lot lately. But I keep picking up great books! Haha. I actually don’t want to go into a lot of details when it comes to Cress since it’s the third installment and it could give out potential spoilers.

April 13, 2015 book review, Kara 2 ★★★★

As you probably know by now, I am trying really hard to read a good portion of middle grade this year. Every year I say I want to read more and then I Just get sidetracked and don’t do it. Now the middle grade books are REALLY stacking up on my shelves, plus I requested a good portion from publishers this year. I have committed myself and I intend to more »
