Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven't
Talked About In A While
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)
I tend to talk about the same books over and over, because when I love a book, or an author, or a character, it's just easy to do. But as time goes by, and new books filter into my brain, I sometimes forget about ones I really, really liked. Maybe even loved. Here are a few that I still hold high affection for and highly recommend in case you're looking for a good read.
1) Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
