Books to Read:

I was debating on just winging it this round, but I definitely have some books I want to get through. So I chose a few, but the rest will be dependent on my mood at the time. I’ve already started The Rose and the Dagger so I’ll just be finishing that up.



I’ll be updating on my blog once a day, but I will be on Twitter and Instagram way more often throughout the week. Feel free to see how I’m doing from there!
