Reading & Watching

  • Katie
    • Highly recommend The Hating Game by Sally Thorne . Contemporary romance that is soooooooooo good!
    • Read Love, Lies, and Spies by Cindy Antsey. Sorta kinda like a historical romance, but young adult (so no sex or even kissing) with a mystery and spies thrown in.  
    • Currently reading The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco. This is a YA paranormal fantasy about a dark asha (witch) who comes into her powers.
