The Longest Semester Ever

Hello from a long, much needed absence! I took a break from blogging (and reading) this semester to focus on my Junior year classes.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Ann, Not Annie by Sage Steadman

Bout of Books: Wednesday Progress Report

Yesterday I managed to finish Ruth Ware’s The Lying Game. It was the story our book club decided on and I was cutting it close since we were meeting that night to discuss it. I managed to wrap up the book but just barely, I read the last thirty pages two hours before we were…
