Mean Who You Are

I love reading and writing. I read most genres but my favourites would be paranormal romances and inspirational/motivational books. I have mostly started this blog because I love to read so much and want to share my reviews and thoughts with the world or anyone who wants to read it, giving my little bit of input to the world as well as any topics of light that would help and motivate you. I am also an aspiring author, in between reading books and reviewing them, I am writing two separate books, one fiction and one non-fiction. I have too many books and Ebooks, enough to last me probably 2 lifetimes! You can never have enough books... he he

My Review:

I read this novella after I read book 1 Nightshade. Shadow Days is a great introduction to Shay and getting to know him before he meets Calla. I loved meeting his friends he had made before he moved into his uncles estate. Ally is my favourite. Andrea sets the scene perfectly and it did make me like Shay a little bit more. I could picture everything so clearly. Although I must admit at this point I am still Team Ren!!! It was fun seeing Shay trying to figure our social media and run a blog - Points scored there :) 

Final Thoughts: This was a great quick read!
My Rating:
