I’m a little torn about this book. While there were various aspects I loved, I don’t think I liked the main character. To be honest, when I start to question the book, I don’t think to examine the main character, yet here I am…

Top 5 Wednesday: Authors I Want to Write Like

And then even more so when Maggie Stiefvater’s book tour for All the Crooked Saints would stop at the con! Was it possible that I could meet one of my favorite authors for the second time in the same year? The answer was yes! Haha.
