I’m working on some additions to this blog. So far it has been reviews only. Sometime soon I will be adding weekly updates on what I am reading with mini reviews, as well as dialogues of literary analysis. Stay tuned! Advertisements

Fireworks – Four Summer Stories

May 17, 2010


It’s almost summer. And what’s one major step in preparing for summer? That’s right. Selecting your summer reads.
