THE SCORPIO RACES is one of those rare novels that remind you while you love to read.

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

This was a little disturbing and I would have disliked it had I not realized how much humanity Cinder has in her. She wants to be human. Cinder works as […]

Maybe not, but at least the main […]
