Book Review – Until Friday Night

Until Friday Night (The Field Party, #1)Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Forgive me, but I don’t really care about either of you, Maggie and West.

Book Review – A Promise of Fire

A Promise of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles #1)A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Warning: mild spoilers.

Soon after, I ended up travelling for 3 days left and right. I get cranky when I do that and lots of things were frustrating me, so this book was supposed to be my solace. Even when it slowed down unbearably in the middle, I was invested enough to continue.
Then the ending happened. I snapped.  Continue reading
