One-line Reviews #1

So most of you know (and if you don’t it’s easy to figure out *blushes*) that I tend to write lengthy, sprawling reviews that often go on perhaps a bit too long, but I’m thinking of giving something new a try. Whether this becomes a monthly thing, a one-time thing, etc. I don’t know yet but what the heck. Here’s my first post of one-line reviews for the books I’ve read/finished this month.
