August saw me go back to full time at work, which is why this blog has been a little quieter lately, as I only have time to dedicate to writing on days off, and my reading time has also diminished, though I do read most evenings and during work breaks. Despite that, I did hit… Continue reading August Wrap Up
It's a few days into August, which is my birthday month, yay! 25 here I come... I have some celebrations prepared that will involve a lot of pampering, food, and -of course- books! I may talk a bit about it at the end of the month, in August's wrap-up, but for now, let's have a… Continue reading July Wrap Up
