Currently Reading: We Hunt The Flame (Sands of Arawiya #1) by Hafsah Faizel

I am officially in the longest reading slump ever. It’s been months. I’m dying.

Defy the Fates by Claudia Gray – Review & Life Update

Hello! I know, its been awhile. I’m so sorry for disappearing out of nowhere. The semester is coming to an end, and school and work just got the best of me. That said– I’m back and here to stay! My posts during this next week or so may be a little sporadic as I try to survive finals, but after that, I’ll be back to my 2+ posts per week!! I’ll still be doing my monthly wrap up/tbr, as well as my May Releases, they’ll just be a little late this month.

I’ve missed ranting about books and talking to you guys! I’m so excited to be back!!! Okay, enough about me, let’s get to the review…
