Hi, hello, it’s been a hot second since I actually touched this blog in a meaningful way. I wish I had a solid explanation, but really, blogging has just been hard for me lately. In an attempt to justify an absence from reviewing, I will say these things: I took an off-roll (no course) last […]

Ratings by each book: Shiver: 3 stars, although in hind-sight, it’s probably closer to four stars. Linger: 3 stars, and probably still 3 stars. Forever: 4 stars, yay, improvements!!
