The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz | Book Review

The Inexplicable Logic Of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz is one of those books that I just HAD to read. I mean you would feel the same way if you’ve read Aristotle And Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe. My only real hesitation was if this book would be quite as good as my […]
