January-March WRAP UP!

So far, 2018 has been a great reading year. I don’t think there has ever been a year where, within the span of three months, I’ve managed to read five books (for pleasure). For me that’s such a win. I had originally set my 2018 Bookish New Years Resolution to read 30 books but the…

The Uncaptivating Captive Prince

1/5 stars. I had heard so many good things about this book that I was excited to give this book a try; I really really wanted to like it. Alas, I did not enjoy the book at all. To put it simply, I could not come to terms with the constant change of writing styles….
