Book Blind Date

Hello my fellow readers! This is book-dating guru McKayla back for another Blind Date with a Book! If you missed the first in this series, I suggest checking it out as well! After all, you never know when you’ll find love.

That’s why I’m here.

It works like this: I’ll use some-what vague identifiers for four books below. If there’s one that intrigues you, all you need to do is scroll down, click on the catalogue link, and reserve your next date. Make sure you plan a quiet night; you’ll want to invest sometime.
