Sapphire Skies by Belinda Alexandra

I picked up this book because I misremembered one of the challenges for the 2015 Readers Challenge. I thought I had to read a book with a precious stone in the title; it should have been a book with a chemical element in the title. You can see my mistake! So while this isn’t a […]

2015 Reading Challenge or Judging a book by the title.
