Confessions of a Bookworm Chapter Two

It's been a while since my last confession.  I have to start by saying this, reading has been my best coping mechanism since the pandemic hit.

My Reading System

I mentioned in my last post that despite loving Kings of the Wyld I wasn't going to read the sequel, Bloody Rose for a while. This is because of two reading rules I have. I know that might sound silly but they are part of my reading system that I have been working on since... Continue Reading →
