5.0 Caraval by Stephanie Garber
This is one of my top two favorite books that I've read so far this year. I raved so much about it on my bookstagram I think my followers got super tired of me for it. Lol. Not only is the game playing with Scarlett's mind, but it played with mine as well. "Remember that it's all a game." But it's s...
