Book Review | Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys


Between Shades of Gray came to me in a box from LitKit, which, SO SADLY, is now defunct. When I first saw the book I thought, “Uhh…what are they doing to me?” which is a terrible thing because this book was published before that other book that has “shades” and “gray” in the title. I […]

Review | LitKit June 2016 + An Article About My Shelving Habits

Once again I had to drive to the next town over to pick up a box my mailperson hadn’t left at our farmhouse and once again it was totally worth it! This is my first month of LitKit and when I learned about it I about jumped up and down for joy. As they describe […]
