I am a very bad series-finisher, my bookcases are full of half-completed series or ones I’ve never even started, and that is something I’m endeavouring to change in 2023.

This week I’ve decided to take part in ‘Top Ten Tuesday’ hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl again. So, the topic we’ve been given is ‘books with our favourite trope/theme’. I found this quite a difficult one to answer so I’ve listed ten vague and broad themes and tropes found in books, and paired each one up with a book I love… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books With My Favourite Themes or Tropes
So, I haven’t been seen for two weeks, which lets be honest is kind of the norm for this blog, unfortunately this time I was absent for some not so fun reasons.
