    1. I hope you will enjoy them all!

    1. I’m not a big poetry reader but Aphrodite Made Me Do It sounds amazing, I also really love the cover! I hope you love it!

    1. Big hauls for me give me mixed feelings. On the one hand I’m super excited to have new books, on the other I’m like OMG when and how am I going to read these any time soon! 😉 Can’t say any of these are my thing but hope they work out for you! And good job standing your ground.

Say hello! ♥
