Sea of Strangers – Lang Leav (ARC Review)

I have always loved Lang’s poetry, ever since I can remember knowing it existed. I used to read her work over and over as a teen, getting lost in how emotive and haunting it was. When I saw that she was releasing a new collection, I couldn’t wait to read it, and was so grateful […]

Top 10 Tuesday: Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start

This is a weekly tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s challenge is Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start But Haven’t!
