A Book Haul Long Overdue

It’s been a while since my last book haul (almost seven months to be more precise), and a few things have happened since then.

My bookshelf has never looked prettier. … Continue reading

Book Haul: Time to Catch Up

Three months since my last haul, and four new and shiny books to show. :) Stand-Off by Andrew Smith.

In my opinion this one isn’t as good as Winger, but though I was disappointed … Continue reading
