Book Review: “Impossible” by Sarah Lotz

Doing a review for this book that does it just is, well… impossible. How I would love to stop my review there, but Amazon and other sites require a certain number of words, so I will endeavour to say more. One of the challenges with doing a review for Impossible (also know as The Impossible…

Book Review: “Her Perfect Family” by Teresa Driscoll
