REVIEW: The Girl at Midnight (The Girl at Midnight #1) – Melissa Grey

20345202Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she’s ever known.

Life

Ah, life! What a perfectly ordinary thing for all of us. We often run from it to books, writing or other hobbies.

Well, life happened and I may not have as much time for my blog as before. I thought I would manage it even with my school and work, but sadly, life keeps throwing me hurdles and I have more work load than I anticipated.

That is to say – this blog is NOT being put to hiatus. I will still post, but it will be mainly reviews, so from now on, expect like three or four posts per month. Yeah, not much, but it’s something at least.

I’m really sorry. I will get back to normal posting speed as soon as the situation calms down.

Thanks for understanding!

Guest post / review

I decided to reach out to all of the book bloggers out there. I realise that my blog is quite new and not very popular (yet! Hahaha! *evil laugh*) but even so – if you want, you can write a post or write a review on my blog. I could do the same for you if you like. Sounds fun, right?

So….who’s in? 🙂
