“I assure you, I am perfectly capable of identifying a phallus when I see one,” Stoke informed me, clipping the words sharply. “And that is no such thing.”

Welcome to Mini Review Friday! Sometimes we read books that just don’t need a full on, 1000(ish) word review. Maybe it was just an uninspiring book or maybe it was a DNF we still have a little something to say about. Whatever the reason, I have a couple of books for you this week that are getting the Mini Treatment.
