Hello my lovely lemons! How are you doing? I'm coming at you with a bit of a discussion post today. You probably won't believe it, but I came up with this post while I was reading an ARC.

One of them in particular - The Flame in the Mist. I mentioned how I support its message, and the fact … Continue reading Discussion Time! | Is It Okay to Dislike a Diverse Book?
I'm doing this blogging thing wrong. I'm beginning to realise that I haven't been very honest.
