Reading Round-up: February 2021

December and January were kind of a lot, so I ended up forgetting to add a few lovely stories to my January list. You'll see them here.

Kate Daniels re-read

Back in 2020 I re-read the entire Kate Daniels series from start to finish in anticipation of the release of Blood Heir in January 2021 (reviewed in January's Reading Round-up).

And of course there is a lot of uncertainty right... Continue Reading →
