And I Darken- Book Review

And I Darken by Kiersten White My rating: 5 of 5 stars And I Darken is impressive, to say the least.

The Travelling Circus reminded me of the stories I read as a child in the Dark, Dark Room books. Astonishing, yet slightly creepy. This is… Continue reading Travelling Circus Review
