  1. I’ve read four! October Mourning (a quick read that will break your heart), Gone Gone Gone (Hannah Moskowitz is an incredibly talented writer), If I Told You So (I was asked to blurb this one!), and, of course, Don’t Let Me Go, my personal favorite, ha ha. Enjoy your reading! I probably won’t get to all of them, but there are a few I’m dying to read!

    • Late reply is late, but thanks for stopping by and commenting!

      I’ve read a few, just haven’t posted the reviews or anything about them. I’m unsure of how many I’ll actually get to, but Don’t Let Me Go is on the list for sure :P
