Review: The Gilded Wolves

I borrowed this book from the library several months ago now--during my summer holidays--and I read it promptly, but I haven't been very proactive in writing the review for it. Luckily, I take notes after finishing a book so that everything I want to write about it is fresh down on the page for me to revisit. Before I get into a new review, I figure I might as well catch myself up and write the ones I've been putting off. So, here I am drinking peppermint tea and freaking out about this intricately gorgeous cover that holds an even more intricate and gorgeous story...

Many years later, I saw the book at the bookstore and I thought maybe I should try it again. I wasn’t disappointed...

Haul

April 2017 Book Haul

This is the first time I've ever done one of these (been a lot of those lately). It's also not something I will necessarily do every month, because there might be times where I don't get any books (there's these things called libraries!). However, my local library had a spring sale and I also went to a second hand bookstore, so I figured I might as well do a haul post. All of the synopsis' are copied from Amazon. The images were obtained on Google images...
