An Awesome Discussion for Bloggers

Hi friends, happy Wednesday! I hope you’re having a lovely week so far. I feel like changing things up lately, mixing up my usual schedule and, well…chatting when I feel like it, basically.

Double Review: Far From You & All the Wind in the World

I hope everyone is doing well 🙂 Recently I’ve been back from vacation and been able to read more than I have in a little while. It felt strange at first to be able to read so much with having so many adult responsibilities, but it quickly grew on me and I just plowing through…

Monthly Recommendations: Required Reading +TBR

When I saw the recent topic for Monthly Recommendations, I wasn’t sure what to put. The term “required reading” is a loose term, since you can use any genre. I also didn’t want to list a ton of repeats as always. But I divided it into a couple sections: favorites I think should be required…
