Review Hodgepodge (#6)

Well, this is me, so as usual, I picked up one M/M book fully prepared to move on to something else when I was done. That rarely happens, and it sure as heck didn’t happen this time. I don’t know what it is about the genre (sub-genre?) that grips me. Once I’m in, it’s hard to find my way out. I find M/M to be brimming with emotions that don’t feel forced and filled with angst that is beautifully done. I found some really good (and funny) reads with this bunch. And one full-on bust. 🙁 Adulting 101 by Lisa [ Read More of this Review ]
