An interactive romance novel. It’ll be fun, they said. You won’t lose your mind, they said. Well, they lied. Oh, they lied so badly (whoever ‘they’ might be). This book is the bane of my existence. No, not just because it is the most confusing drivel I have ever read. No, not just because I … Continue reading Book Review: My Lady’s Choosing (a.k.a., the most aggravating book I have ever read)
