5 Heroes who make us see fireworks

5 Heroes who make us see fireworks It’s Independence Day in the United States. Typically, this is celebrated by eating foods cooked on a grill and enjoying fireworks. (And probably also complaining about how hot and/or sticky it is outside and trying to find the bug spray in your purse.) But this is Vampire Book Club. I can’t show you pretty explosions in the sky.

Amanda Bonilla Guest Post & Giveaway: Throwing books and character frustration Thanks so much to Chelsea and Vampire Book Club for hosting me today! This is one of my favorite blogs to visit and Chelsea, you rock!!! We’ve all had that moment.
