I’ve finished my first trilogy, folks – my first trilogy that hasn’t turned into a series, anyway 🙂 I finished Broken Moon, book three in my Aura trilogy, last night while watching The Dark Knight Rises with my roommates.

I read it through from beginning to end and actually really, really enjoyed it.… Continue reading The First Read-Through
