2016 is Almost Over… Already?

I decided to change things up and try out monthly recaps instead of weekly ones, which I’m now calling ‘State of the Blog’. I’m linking this one up to two memes: Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 🙂 Looking Back on December Oh, December, what a month it’s been.

Hyped Books are Not for Me

Hyped Books are Not for Me

I’ve never been a big fan of hyped books. I just don’t believe in the marketing. Too many times have I been lied to and mislead.
