Book Review: Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Dear Bookworms, Ahhhh, the finale, always a bittersweet time when finishing up a trilogy. It’s the build up and anticipation, the mad dash to find out what happens, then the hole in your heart when it’s all over, book in hand wondering what you’re supposed to do with your life after such an intense run […]
