REVIEW: Scorched by Erica Hayes

Scorched - Erica Hayes

I haven’t read anything by Erica Hayes before, but after reading a few reviews for Scorched, and seeing that it was on NetGalley for review, I decided to give it a go. And I’m so pleased I did.

How I Read Tag!

Summer Reading Photo

This tag was originally created by Enyas Corner. Welcome to another tag post here on Book Chick City! This month I thought it would be fun to think about how I read, and I think these questions are a great starting point to examine your reading habits and perhaps change your approach to reading. 1) How do you find out about new books to read? I usually find out about new books when browsing in my local book shops, especially Waterstones. I love that they usually have tables set up with…
