Goodreads Review: Life In Motion

I’m actually really excited about Misty’s new book Ballerina Body but need to save up or see if my local library will have a copy so I figured I’d repost my review of her memoir from 2014.

Goodreads Review: The Wall Between

The Wall BetweenThe Wall Between by Jesper Bugge Kold
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*I received a copy through netgalley to review.

Phenomenal! Kold’s writing drew me in immediately. His descriptions are lush but concise and the result is an impression of a character you want to continue getting to know.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Reading the description of the book and the reviews I knew what to expect generally from Blog, Inc. It is a spot on title because it really is about blogging for passion turning that into profit and utilizing/creating community connections to amplify the effects of both.
