September Reviews

I've moved reviews to Instagram to see how that goes. Follow me on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/feminismandyoga/?hl=en This should open up time and space here... Continue Reading →

Ember Queen by Laura Sebastian

As with the first two parts of this series, I love this finale! Sebastian is amazing and I love the world she built. Though life hasn't allowed much time for posting, I have been reveling in amazing worlds last month. I finished this series and then The Belles and the Firebird series (end of that...
