CHISME TIME: THE RETURN

via GIPHY *Waves shyly* Hi! It’s me, Tina. The once owner of As Told By Tina. It’s been a very long time since I’ve actually posted. I’ve somewhat disappeared from the book world all together.

However, I haven’t read the first three books in the series and I don’t feel like I missed anything by not reading the first three books.
