Sometimes, I can be so absent-minded. That’s why I had forgotten that rather than just put a link to this review by making a new post two entries ago, I should’ve just hit “Reblog” from the review page itself. Anyway, I am reblogging now, and letting you know that you can write about any of the books from their list.
