The Walker Papers Series by C.E. Murphy Comes to an End

I started reading this series back in 2012. Now that I have finished it, I am going to miss reading about Joanne’s road to self-discovery and some amazing male characters — who didn’t take over her story or act like assholes. Here is an infographic on why I loved this series the way I did:…

March 2018 — A Wrap Up

Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry Creates a feeling of dread very nicely but doesn’t follow through. The protag is made to look so smart in so many ways and yet her stupidity gets an old woman killed! Barely anything happens in the book and it feels like a go-between for the first and third books…
