Hello bookworms! How are you? I’m preparing my self-isolation reading tbr for April, and decided that because I have so much free time, I need to revisit some of my all-time favourite books!
Hello everyone! Halloween is just a day away and so today I’m looking at books with my favourite spooky settings. In most of the cases, the books have inspired my favourite spooky settings.
