Review: Carry On

  3/5 *Taken from Goodreads* Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen. That’s what his roommate, Baz, says.

Sometimes a book doesn't hold my attention, or I loose motivation to continue, work gets hectic, the boyfriend comes over, school creeps up on me and knocks my "for fun" reading right out of my hand with a baseball bat. Whatever the reason,… Continue reading TBR Pile: May
