{ARC Review+Giveaway} Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto @ellemodesto @BalzerandBray

Revenge and the Wild is a standalone novel by Michelle Modesto. Notice that I did not put a genre in the previous sentence. That is because I think it is impossible to sum up Revenge and the Wild with a single genre. This book is delightfully different. I know words like unique and different get thrown around a lot in review, but in this case it is absolutely 100% true.

How on earth did Michelle Modesto do it? I have no idea, and I honestly don’t think it can be replicated. This book was just so well done. I loved the mash up of genres, and I really, really loved the finished result. And to think this is Michelle Modesto’s debut novel totally blows my mind. Revenge and the Wild is set in a small town in… Read more »
