Review: Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

Why Did I Read? I loved Vengeance Road so much and love westerns in general so you can imagine how excited I was to hear about a companion novel coming out!

Reread Review: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

What I Remember: I remember loving the friendship and I remember it being heartbreaking and sobbing. 🙁 Why I Wanted to Reread: Well, […]
