Book Review | The Love Interest

When it came time to choose my Book of the Month Club book for this month, one book immediately caught my eye. Maybe it was because I’d seen it around before, or because the cover is so wonderfully spy-thriller-esque (and a little cheesy), but I knew I needed to get my hands on Cale Dietrich’s […]

Weekly Wrap Up – May 14

This week, I tried to read as much as I possibly could, since it was my last full week without having to work. And while I am very excited about my new job, and grateful to have gotten a good one, I am definitely going to miss my free time. I didn’t end up reading […]

Weekly Wrap Up – May 7

This week has actually been a really great reading week for me, which I’m extra happy about since I didn’t read anything at all last week. I finished a grand total of three books this week, and have made decent progress on another two. And while I say this was a great reading week, I’m definitely […]
