What I’ve been reading lately #11

It wasn't the case with Celeste Ng's… Continue reading Blog tour: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Friday Favourites #13

I love writing these posts; even if I've had a particularly lazy/stressful/shitty week, I'm always able to think of at least five things that have put a smile on my face.
