Rapid Review of Renegades

No spoilers in this rapid review of Renegades by Marissa Meyer. I give it 3 stars. I had high expectations for this book.

Rapid Review of Want

No spoilers in this rapid review of Want by Cindy Pon. I give it 4.25 stars. I really enjoyed it! How does this book only have 900 ratings on Goodreads?!
