    Good afternoon bookworms! Book haul categories are as follows: book boxes book purchases (book mail, instore and digital) review copies (book mail and digital), and bookish items (book related, but not actual books). I subscribe to three monthly boxes: OwlCrate, FairyLoot and the book-only subscription for LitJoy. However, unusually I cancelled ALL THREE for October.

Hence my sudden disappearance again!! But I’m on the mend again, so fingers crossed I can finally catch up and finish all…
