Book Bits #1


Welcome to the first Book Bits post!  Book Bits are mini-mini-reviews of books that I either don't have time or inclination to review fully.  However, I have read the entirety of the books I mention.  (For the purposes of GRaB, Book Bits counts as one review.)

  2. Oh, hey, this is a great idea. A book review at a glance! I'm surprised that Demon Slayers is clunky because isn't it supposed to be light with great pacing?
