“For everyone made to feel like a side character in their own story”
🌟 I like the dedication of this book very much as I always think of people as main or secondary characters. I myself am a secondary character!
🌟 Some of you know that I didn’t finish the And I Darken book. But you also know that I believe in second chances. I wanted to give Kiersten her second chance, and while this was not a favorite book, not even c ...more
