    Joy Of Christmas Book Tag

    We are so close to Christmas it’s ridiculous! I am currently eating my weight in gingerbread and lounging under the air conditioner because it’s supposed to be starting at 31°C (87°F) moving to 36°C (97°F) this week but it definitely feels hotter than that!

    July ’18 wrap-up and August TBR

    I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like I’m just adding the same books onto my TBR, and then every month I have to admit that I didn’t read them (again), only to add them again for next month.
