I know, I promised you that I would have a post up with my current reading list and thoughts…Well, hey, it is still December, right?

Everything has been caught up which means I can focus on writing again.

In the past three weeks, I have been reading some books due out for publication soon. So I thought I would give a breakdown of what I read and my thoughts. Enjoy!Read More »
