Hi everyone! Last week was one of the best weeks I've had in the book community. A photo I took of a bookish candle on Instagram was re-posted by Flick The Wick (love their candles!), my blog post about Book Blogging and Being Enough was favorited by Kristin at Kristin Kraves books AND I won … Continue reading Book Blog Hooray! An Update On My Best Week Ever!

Reading took up so much of … Continue reading What Harry Potter Means to Me
