I actually think that I fall into the black sheep category on this book, but for once in a good way. I think I actually liked it. (I say ‘think’ because I’m rather freaking confused and my feelings are muddled and I think that speaks volumes.) First […]

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl Okay, so I cheated and chose all three Lotus War books because I can’t pick between them and also because they’re still my favorite over everything else. And apparently I love a lot of one word title series, so I picked my favorite book of the series! What are some of your favorite books with one word titles?
