Mini Book Reviews #1

I’ve become obsessed with books again. I want to read all of the time and all I think about is books. Obviously, that will be reflected here on my blog.

This post is the first of a series that you may see popping up every couple of months on this blog. I can’t know how often I will be posting my mini reviews as it depends on how much I’ve been reading. However, I’ll share my mini book reviews whenever I’ve read enough to make a decent post.

Now, onto the mini book reviews…
