I have read literally hundreds of books so far in my life.

Book Review

Heart's Blood // by Juliet Marillier

This was a book that I really, really wanted to like, but, in the end, felt quite meh about it – 3/5.

The story starts strong, with Caitrin, who tells her own story, fleeing into a dark and creepy countryside and being taken in by nervous and suspicious villagers.   543 more words
