Lush Halloween 2017

So first up, yes, I realize Halloween has passed, but since it is the greatest holiday ever/also my birthday, I think we can keep celebrating even into November.

October Reads 2017 Part Two

I shared round one of my October reads a couple weeks ago, but now I’m back with the remaining ones. October was definitely one of my better reading months–it looks like the total was 11 books, and none of them were graphic novels. I haven’t managed to finish a book so far in November, but […]

My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella is cute partly romantic comedy about an English country girl, Katie Brenner, who moves […]
