In this installment of the series, changeling Toby is call...
Don't let my rating fool you: I really enjoyed this book. But the repetitiveness? HOLY SHIT was it ever annoying. This series is quickly becoming a favorite and I absolutely adore October (so far *crosses fingers*), but the amount of times she explained that she can't say "thank you" was so irritati...
I have a rule, any book that can make me laugh and make me cry gets 5 stars. This one fits that rule. Tybalt always makes me laugh and I got sniffly a another part. There was a bit of repetition ("I'm not a hero") but I may have noticed it more because I was listening to audio. I was disappointe...
