Making Bookish Friends

Making Bookish Friends

Ah, the internet! A wonderful place where we can talk about what we like and make new friends. Yeah, there can be nasty people and drama too. But if you’re awkward in real life, the internet can be your saviour.

Book Review: Cursed Luck by Kelley Armstrong

When a man walks in one day asking to hire her for a job, she doesn’t realise he’s asking for more than he’s saying. Aiden Connolly is a luck worker, and he needs a curse weaver to help him win and remove the curse from an important necklace. But he’s not the only one looking for a curse weaver, so when Kennedy’s sisters are in danger. She has to team up with him to find them.
