I Read It First: Me Before You

I'm not really sure how to talk about this book without also delving into an enormous can of worms about disability and death with dignity laws and both of those things as they relate to blatant tear-jerker literature, but here we are anyway, so I guess here we go. The Book: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes… Continue reading I Read It First: Me Before You

What I am saying is that this book is way too long. The Book: Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith Genre:… Continue reading I Read It First: Child 44
