Happy holidays to all those who are celebrating this time of year! No post on Tuesday due to Christmas. After that, it’s my favorite time of the year — book surveys and challenge roundups!
I enjoy romance novels year-round, but something about the holiday season just gives me a hankering for themed romance books.

I liked this one, though, because it felt very much…… Continue reading Doctor Who Review: “Last Christmas”
