A Wrap-Up of Reading I Did in November 2020

Race To The Finish Line by Aisha Yusuf I requested this book from Netgalley and I’m glad I did so! With a cover like that, there was no way I wasn’t requesting this book from Netgalley. I know that this is the work of a very young author and her craft will improve with experience. However,…

August 2020 — A Wrap-Up

Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh If you want to quickly catch-up on what happened in the book before this one, here’s my review. If you’re already up to speed, keep reading. So, this book was the most filler book of em all. All we get to see is how life is for the various couples…

April 2017 Wrap-Up

  I was mostly happy with this installment. Kate seemed back to her true kickass self. However, her getting together with Curran reminds me of what happened when Kate & Castle finally came together on the show, Castle. Too smooth and too sweet to be real!   Steven Brust is one of my favorite authors….
