Review of Crossfire

I’m proud to say I finished the Japanese Literature Challenge with this one book! *claps* one challenge down, millions more to go 😀 oh well at least I managed to read books that I wouldn’t have picked up otherwise, so this sort of thing did open my eyes up to other genres out there. Crossfire […]

Booking Through Thursday 10/29

Suggested by Jennysbooks: Something I’ve been thinking about lately: “What words/phrases in a blurb make a book irresistible?
