Review: Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender

When a family fight results in some tearful sisterly bonding, Alexis realizes that her life is creeping from dysfunction into danger. Kasey is acting stranger than ever: her blue eyes go green sometimes; she uses old-fashioned language; and she even loses track of chunks of time, claiming to know nothing about her strange {Read More}

That didn’t exactly happen as well as I planned, but I do have some reviews in progress and most of them can fit into the types of reading you look for in October. I also have some more {Read More}
