“The Real World”

I saved this blog post as an empty draft almost a year ago, after I got accepted as a part-time supervisor at the library I currently work at.

I'm not sure if that slip in awareness is necessarily a good thing or… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Nine

Break the Chain

If you read my review over the first book in The Scorched Continent (which, can we just say how fantastic of a series name that is?), Steal the Sky, it comes to no surprise that I was really, really excited to read the next installment.
