I cant believe i hit my reading goal of 75 for the year already! I attribute it to reading alot out of my comfort zone, more poetry and more ebooks from Netgalley. Maybe I can make 100 this year now!

Our marriage was a sapling graft that didnt have time to take.

I think the same is true for vengeance. Maybe even love. Its out there, random and deadly, like a tornado.

I was entwined in the story of Roy and Celestial. It was a great story up until the very end and veru heartbreaking. It was refreshing to see the end turn out more real life than fairytale ending. Jones' writing was beautiful. Def recommend this book.
