When you picture getting an English Literature degree, you probably imagine being nose-deep in books all the time. I took a couple of film classes while obtaining my English Lit degree.

kay, so I couldn’t just stop reading the fantasy genre cold turkey. Just because Halloween is over does not mean that we have to give up the paranormal altogether. Besides, I didn’t review any vampire books last month!

October is officially over, so I wanted a change of pace from the paranormal and fantasy books that I have been reading for the past month. The first book to catch my eye in my Kindle queue was Highlander’s Dark Pride by Fiona Faris.
