Alex Rider: Secret Weapon I was a huge fan of the Alex Rider series in high school, so I was excited to read the newest addition to the series, Alex Rider: Secret Weapon by Anthony Horowitz.

    Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid Book Review

    When looking for some new books to add to my to-read list for 2020, a friend suggested we both participate in Reese’s Book Club. I have never been in an official book club, so I was so excited to try something new and branch out in the kind of books that I read. Such a Fun Age is January’s pick, so here we go with the review! I really had no expectations with this book. I didn’t even read a description, which is very unusual for me. Also, I actually listened to the audio book version, which was another first for me. I really enjoyed listening to an audio book,…
