Book Review: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion It took me a while to finish this book. Two months to be precise. It wasn’t because I disliked the book. I loved it from the beginning, but I could tell it might make a little more emotional than I wanted at the time, so I set it aside for […]
