The Luck Uglies by Paul Durham | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To The Luck Uglies by Paul Durham? The Luck Uglies by Paul Durham has such a great cover. I am really into the blue-green color palette of the cover. Of all the books on my Hoopla TBR, The Luck Uglies happened to be the shortest. It is a bit of a shallow […]
