  1. I'm glad you liked Born Wicked. I know not everyone did, but I loved it. And just wait until you read the read of the Last Survivors series. Gah! Talk about tearing your heart out.

    Great month, Lisa. I'm so glad the semester is almost over. I could use the break.

  2. May is already crazy for me. I love when school ends but it just gets so busy! I love Born Wicked! :)


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
