Hey fangirls and guys! It’s Monique here! Jill was kind enough to let me drop in and share a little something, something with you all. Call it a blast from the not-so-distant past. Are you ready? Okay, here we go.
It’s been a good, long while since I’ve written on Fangirl. Not because I ran out of things to say, but it’s truly a labor of love, as I have not had much free time as of late. However, I simply had to write about Hernan Shades Alvarez. I haven’t felt this strongly about a […]
