I am looking forward to following the main character around as she navigates the complexities of a new school and the mysterious clues left behind, in an attempt to solve the mystery.

Getting to Know Me – Book Blog Tag + Giveaway

Can you read listening to music or watching TV?

No. Too distracting for me.

One book at a time, or several at once?

I like to read one book at a time. Easier to keep track and remember the story. Continue reading “Getting to Know Me – Book Blog Tag + Giveaway”
