Bout of Books 20 Recap: Day one

The challenge of day one was to introduce yourself on either “Twitter or Instagram using six words, no more, no less.” I went with Twitter because lets be real, it is easier.

When I chose to read this book, it was because I really wanted a fast and furious monster hunt […]

The story starts out like I expected but as it went on it became exceedingly romantic. I was not […]
