I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?

Shyt List 4: Children of the Wronged (The Cartel Publications Presents)

Shyt List 4 - Reign I waited a long time for book number 4. I have very mixed feelings after reading this one. I knew halfway in that it wasn't going to be like 1, 2, & 3. It held my attention and in some parts left me confused. I thought people were dead that were alive and there were children I had forgotten about from previous reads. This was good but not great. I am hoping part five will revive that "sick wit it flava" that I had grown accustomed to that only Ms. Reign can deliver. Note: After more reflection, reading this felt like it was swapped with fluff to stretch out another book. This book could've been a long chapter of info, totally unnecessary.
