Stuff to Read! (Books and what not…)

~Nusrat~

Nusrat enjoys reading contemporary fiction, young-adult, surreal fiction (think Neil Gaiman), fantasy and paranormal, mystery, fairy tales, and horror. Anything besides that she will have to think about.

Currently Reading: The Fall by Bethany Griffin

I Recommend: The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
