ARC Review: Our Violent Ends by Chloe Gong // I Think I’m Just Heartless

Nothing humbles you like a disappointing anticipated release!

Today, I’m very excited to review When We Were Infinite, and hopefully persuade you to read it and experience its beauty for yourself, or at the very least add it to your TBRS. I don’t remember the last time I’ve ever felt so hollow after reading a book, and if it was able to make my cold dead heart feel something, you know it was amazing.
