Masquerade by Cambria Hebert

Masquerade by Cambria Hebert

  I participated in the read-a-long for Masquerade, so it was interesting get so many different perspectives on the book each week.  I actually think I liked it more because of that.  I mean I liked the book regardless, but going through it at a slower pace, and discussing it with others made me appreciate […]

Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers

Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers

I don’t care what anyone says – I loved Grave Mercy, and it now sits on my favorites shelf.  I knew that I was going to like it when I first heard of it, because it sounded exactly like the type of book for me.  I tried not to read many reviews before I had […]
