I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

The Winner's Curse

The Winner's Curse - Marie Rutkoski I'd give this a solid 3.5 stars. It was enjoyable and very interesting. A lot of this book is shaped around music, which wasn't quite what I was expecting. It was still good, but the main character's life is definitely influenced by her love for playing the piano. I loved the aspect of forbidden love.

Overall, "The Winner's Curse" was very engaging. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series :).
