Trigger Warning: Rape I have some very mixed feelings on this book, which is going to make it super hard to review. I love mythology, so the basis of this book is a total win for me. However, I was not a fan of the writing style at ALL. The prose is very, VERY dry. That was probably my biggest issue with this book. It’s told in past tense, first person – which is usually my favorite, because I tend to connect […]

Books That Made Me Ugly Cry (I May Be a Closet Masochist?)

Books That Made Me Ugly Cry (I May Be a Closet Masochist?)
Posted by Jessi (Geo) on December 12, 2019 | 0 Comments
