Book Review

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

This book was enjoyable in the way that watching another rerun of your favorite sitcom is: it’s entertaining, but you never quite get the same enjoyment out of it as you used to.

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event held by Jill over at Breaking The Spine! It’s all about those books you just can’t wait for and are counting down the days till they come out.
