Reviews

My review list includes all books reviewed since I started this blog in June 2015. Reviews (with links included) are now listed alphabetically by author last name. I also include a section of new reviews of the previous month. Enjoy!

I update this list monthly with new reviews.

*I use some spoilers in my reviews to give my full opinion of the novels.
I try not to give too much away though so you still can enjoy the books too! 🙂
