This was one of those books that I just didn’t want to put down – and now I can’t wait for the next installment. What I LOVED: Shades of Gray. Those of you who read my reviews often know how much I love stories that involve not just good and evil, but everything in […]

It was all a bit crazy, but also really fun!! Here are some of the highlights: Cassandra Clare and Holly Black were up first (both with very colorful hair!), and they talked about their process for writing The Iron Trial. They said that basically, […]
