All that’s Missing is an EPIC Space Battle! Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray Audiobook Review

OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

OMG THE FEELS! Devil in Spring by Lisa Kleypas Audiobook Review

Coincidentally, my turn for the library cue came a few days before the US Presidential Election, which I thought was very appropriate. I had to read this. In fact, I finished listening to the audiobook on election day. I admit to […]
