I Was Told There Would Be Cake

When it comes to reading a new book, I am always a little picky with trying new authors because of content. You never know if a book is going to be good or not until you actually read it. And insert the saying don’t judge a book by its cover, although sometimes, most of the time, I have actually found that easy and accurate. That would also explain the very sorry current state of my bookshelf. Y’all are going to be seeing quite a few book reviews along the way as I start to update it a little bit. So be prepared.


From despoiling an exhibit at the Natural History Museum to provoking the ire of her first boss to siccing the cops on her mysterious neighbor, Crosley can do no right despite the best of intentions — or perhaps because of them.
