Karis, could you add a sentence or two to your reviews? :)

I was under the assumption that the books read in the easy category didn't need to be reviewed. I can review these books, but is it required?

You know what, since it wasn't clear and I do want this challenge to be easy, easy and moderate categories don't need to review the books if they don't want. :)

Spencer's face creaked into a smile he'd rarely worn since his return from his army tour." (I can't give page number because I only have the kindle version, which gives locations and percentages.)
