  1. Good luck Shon! I don't really do challenges just because I lose focus throughout the year. :) I hope you love the rest of The Lunar Chronicles and the Shatter Me trilogy! They're two of my favorites. I just read The Rose Society and enjoyed it, but the "it" factor is missing for me. Nevertheless, I hope you love it!

    1. Thanks. Me too! I just want to get some book off my TBR. I have 343 books on my TBR.
