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

How I Love Axie Muldoon

My Notorious Life - Kate Manning

I love Axie. She's caring, loyal, compassionate, tenacious and vulnerable. She's lost trust and struggles throughout to believe it exist. She understands what it means to be without love, to be without a Mum. And because of this she continuously puts herself at risk.


This story is an unforgettable one. You feel for the characters what they've experienced and endured. I was on edge with this read. If I wasn't biting my nails I was crying salty tears. This might not be a book for the faint of heart, but it is one I wouldn't pass up the chance to read.


I was given the opportunity to read and review this book through Netgalley and Scribner.


***Proper review to come. These are just my rambled thought after just finishing the book.
