Sometimes I crack myself up. Safety net. Net-flix. Get it? Anyway.

This book. I want to be so happy with it. It was so well written, and the message is great. However. It was such a weird story. It centered on the life of an elite swimmer, and her artist of a boyfriend. They go through everything together. There was so much talk about 'Destiny' it… Continue reading Reader’s Rants: Infinite Blue by Darren and Simon Groth
