A Recap of Reads, Since I’ve Been Away – My Recommendations

Hey there!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been away a while. Well, I’m back. *waves* However, I’m planning on blogging again, but on a much smaller scale.

Life takes us on many unexpected journeys and I just don’t have the time to blog like I was before. But I miss you guys, and I miss sharing what great books we’ve been discovering, so I’m going to write quick, simple reviews, from now on, just so that you don’t miss out on any corkers!

    So verrrry happy to see you back, Mrs Smitten ❤ I do have a list of books but I had better get them written down before I send them. That way I won't forget one. I do, however have one, very special – to me book: TRAVELING MAN by Jane Harvey Berrick .this is part one of a duet of books. This is the only, duet of books she has written since, The Education of Sebastian/ Caroline.

      Sounds good to me. I’m not taking review requests anymore, because there’s no way I can commit to that, but I’d definitely love to have a peak at Leverage. 🙂 x
