It took me until NOW to realize that many of the SFF YA novels I've purchased over the years have similar cover art. You'll see what I mean in… Continue reading Outed by my book-buying habits

Dreamy Book Cover Tag

Jenna tagged me in this visually-inspired book tag. I found out last year that - surprise, surprise - I learn visually after years of claiming to be an auditory processor.
