Today, I have the immense honour of being a part of the blog tour for The Cousins by Karen McManus. Thank you so much to The Write Reads and Penguin for inviting me to take part.

One of Us is Next
As this is the sequel to One of Us is Lying, the synopsis and review do contain spoilers for that book.

First up, it's the gripping One of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus (which I also hauled recently). Trigger warnings: ableism, mental illness, suicide, forced outing, … Continue reading Mini Review Monday #4
So, while I'm working on my massive (and late) November Wrap-Up, I decided to fill day 4 of 18 days of 2018 with a fun little post. I'm using books off my TBR to spell out Merry Christmas, as I've seen other blogs use this same tactic to spell out different words. I am also … Continue reading Merry Christmas!
