Description: The Venue: Read a book with a church or castle on the cover

PS: one of my status updates says May 31 but I don't know why. I started this book on June 1st in my time zone, just to make things clear.


message 4: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments Melany, could you repost the link to your review? You accidentally posted the one to the wedding challenge. No worries about the status update though. I've noticed that if you start a book on your time zone, but it's still the day before on pacific time (Goodreads time) it will count it as such.
