Tome Topple Wrap Up

Tome Topple 2020

I knew when I made my TBR that it was highly ambitious but in all honestly I thought I'd read more than two books. Part of my lack of reading was because I was spending so much time working in the garden trying to get it painted and ready for summer. Turns out it takes a long time to paint walls white.... Nevertheless, I loved the books I…

Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin

Serpent & Dove feels as though it has been a permanent fixture in the book community for years. In reality, it was only published last year.

I had to giggle, I have literally read none of the books these items are about. None. I do however own six of them. I hope that gives you an indication of how my book hoarding is... Whilst…

I very nearly didn't manage to get this box. I missed out on the first drop and didn't realise how few were available. Fortunately, whilst on holiday I managed to grab one in the second release. It took a look for furious tapping and praying that my wi-fi held up whilst out in Sicily. I'm so so glad it did. I adored this box. Everything was amazing! This…
