    Good afternoon bookworms! I am so excited for this tag!! It was one I was planning to do anyway when I saw the prompts, but then Emmie tagged me in it, so I guess it was fate!! It’s not really cool enough to wear a jumper here… I’m eating ice-cream as I type this up, but I do love Christmas jumpers!! (I bought a Hogwarts one when we were in Europe for Christmas 2 years ago.) This post is part of Bookending Winter 2019, which is organized by Sam & Clo! Today’s…

    Good morning bookworms! Welcome back to another edition of… books I would recommend to Overwatch characters! (Click HERE for edition 1) Also, shout out to my team New York Excelsior (NYXL) for their hard work in the play-offs.
