    First of all, I hadn’t yet seen your new lay-out and by golly, it’s gorgeous! Love the colours too!

    I too am looking forward to The Missing Girls. Other than that, I don’t have a clue what releases when. I count on people like you to let me know! 😄

    Also, these posts are just so you don’t have to do a weekly wrap-up, huh? 🤣

      Thanks Eva I’m constantly changing my theme as I always find something I don’t like about, I’m far to fussy that’s my problem but I’m glad you like it. I could have done a weekly wrap-up as I’ve read a few more books than usual but decided to do one next week instead, so watch this space x

        I think that’s normal. We want our blog to look nice. I told myself I’m not allowed to touch until my first blogiversary or I’d be changing it every week 😄. Look forward to seeing what you read this week. I’ll go get my pillows. Hurts less when I faint 😉😘
