Book Review: Wait for You by J. Lynn

Book Reviews | July 13, 2013

When this book first came out in February, it had an amazing amount of hype.

ARC Book Review: Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young

ARC Book Review: Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young

Book Reviews | July 6, 2013

In the first half of this year I discovered a sub-genre I’m totally in love with: stories involving alternate/parallel universes. I adore Pivot Point to pieces and Parallel was surprisingly endearing and good. Then I made it my goal to read all the books in this sub-genre coming out this year, and Just Like Fate popped up on my radar. I […]
