SPLASH INTO SUMMER ROUND-UP



What a journey! SPLASH INTO SUMMER was a lot of fun, wasn’t it? Thanks for making it all possible! In the end, I didn’t have enough time to post my review of FINS ARE FOREVER by Tera Lynn Childs, which is what inspired the event in the first place. I should have just reviewed it the first day instead of waiting, lol! Buuuuuuuuuut I will review it at some point this summer and there will still be some fun interactive things for you. So look forward to it!

To sum up Splash for those who weren’t watching too closely or joined the game late:
