Alex, Approximately

Alex, Approximately

Rating: And yet again I find myself on the unpopular side of the spectrum *sighs*  Honestly, I had high hopes for this one. I’ve been reading a lot of fantasy and generally depressing contemporaries, so my heart wanted a break to gush and blush like a schoolgirl. Sadly, this book did not deliver on that [...]

And for about half way through everything was fine. I thought this might even be a five star. You [...]

It solidified my hope to become an author; if only so that I could write something as masterful as [...]
