Gabriel's Inferno
5 of 5 stars
"Tell me that you want me, or get out."

Redemption, forgiveness, and love, love, love. That is what this story is about. Forgiving yourself and learning how to love an equally flawed human being with the same unconditiona…

The Bell Jar
5 of 5 stars
What to say about this classic? The epitome of poetic brilliance in all of its supreme, angsty glory. One of my absolute faves.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Where do I begin? I actually enjoyed this installment much more than the first and that shocks me because for the fi…

Obsidian
5 of 5 stars
