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

Expensive Taste

Expensive Taste - Tiphani This book was fantastic. It totally took me by surprise. The language on the first page left me wondering but after that I was hooked. The story just kept getting better and better. When the suspense of wanting to know what was next seemed in sight something else would arise. Tiphani definitely knows how to hook you. The story was smooth, meaning I didn't find the lull that usually appears in the middle towards the end of most books. The time just passed away for me when reading " Expensive Taste". Everything that Mirror initially ran away from came back to haunt her in a horrible way. Most often people think they can do dirt and never have to pay the reaper well, say hello!
