Little Things 13

Happy Wednesday! So, this post is coming at you mid-week because, after weeks of enduring seemingly endless writer’s block, I finally felt an urge to get behind the keyboard again. With a new surge of inspiration, I now have a brief blog plan for the next few months. Who am…

March and April Reading Wrap-Up 2019

My reading for 2019 so far has been incredible and the past couple of months have possibly been some of the best ever. In March and April combined I read 19 books, most of which received at least four stars. Maybe I’m too generous with my ratings, maybe I’m just…
