Review: Flame in the Mist

3/4 The only daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has always known she’d been raised for one purpose and one purpose only: to marry.

The Your Favorite Music Tag: Books and Music -> a perfect combination

This tag was created by Debbie from Debbie’s Library and as much as I seem to avoid book tags on my blog I thought this one was pretty cool! While I wasn't tagged I did see that Lia from Lost in a Story (which is who I got the Down the TBR Hole tag from)… Continue reading The Your Favorite Music Tag: Books and Music -> a perfect combination

I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away… Continue reading Review: The Sun is Also a Star

Give Me Five Friday: 5 Books to Break Your Heart

My friends tell me I’m a picky reader. Sometimes I’m inclined to agree, but usually I don’t.
