The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen | Book Review

The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen was so much better than I expected. I’ll admit I went in with not a lot of expectations. This book has mixed reviews on my goodreads. Still, I wanted to pick it up because I just absolutely love the design of the cover. Also, I’ve been on a roll […]

The Girl In The White Van by April Henry | Book Review

From time to time, it feels like I just want a quick thriller to rip through. Of course, there’s certain things I cannot handle in a thriller (very young children in danger) but otherwise, am good to go with picking one up. The Girl In The White Van by April Henry is a young adult thriller […]
