Catherine’s September 2011 Recommendations

Liberating Lacey

Somehow September is over already. I was pretty busy in real life this month, so I didn’t accomplish quite as much as I was hoping to, but I did sneak in a few great books here and there. Hopefully my schedule will relax in October and I’ll have even more time to read. Kissing Comfort […]

He has just been injured in a fight […]
