Pretty Dark Nothing by Heather L. Reid

I received an e-copy from the publishers at NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was intrigued by how dark and spooky the cover portrayed the book to be. It seemed like it would be more horror than anything else. The premise even gave the same...

Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I read this book at the second most perfect time one could. Of course, the obvious best time is at the very beginning before diving into the other books of the series. I knew it was about Daemon's brother and I honestly didn't see Dawson playing more of a roll...
