These Vengeful Hearts by Katherine Laurin Review – Harlequin Inkyard Press Fall Reads Tour 2020

  The cover of These Vengeful Hearts drew me in at first, and the blurb held promise of a dangerous secret society that ran a high school with an iron fist, handing out favors but only to those who give something up of themselves at a later date or pay the price later. Sixteen-year-old Ember […]

Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry – #TLCBookTours Review

  I’ve loved Katie McGarry’s writing from the very beginning. After reading an advanced reader’s copy of Pushing the Limits way back in 2012 (You can check out the Bookworms’ review of that first book here.), I was sucked in by Katie’s writing and devoured the book in one day. Her books are so full […]
