OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.

Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive.

The Wrap-Up: March Edition

Welcome to my monthly wrap-up! I hope that you've had a great month. 
Please leave a link to your blog (if you have one) in your comment or make sure your Disqus profile has your address so that I can visit you back! 
I try to link all book covers to Goodreads or to my review (if there is one) which is in turn linked to Goodreads.

Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate it! It's quite crazy to think that we're 25% done with this year already!

March was a crazy month for me again! I'm beginning to think crazy is just my new normal and that I should get used to it!  I did however manage to finish seven books somehow and stay fairly on track with my reading goals for the year.
