#BookReview The Winter Family by Clifford Jackman

The Winter Family by Clifford Jackman This book reminds me of Games of Thrones if it was set in a western setting. There's lots of death, and lots of interesting drama to keep you interested.

#BookReview The Year After by Ashley Wagner

The Year After by Ashley Warner was a tale about one woman's experience with rape. That seems like such a horrible way to word that sentence, but this story is a year's worth of journals about what happened after the rape (and a few extra stories from years later). There is literally journals from every… Continue reading #BookReview The Year After by Ashley Wagner
