It’s safe to say that my summer plans for this blog (that is, get back on track when it comes to reviews), failed miserably.

It’s Here!

It’s Here!

Hi there fellow readers :D If you stopped by yesterday, you might have read about me being happy about waiting for The Dream Thieves to arrive all the way from Fountain Bookstore (since I live in Sweden it’s quite a distance). :) Well, the waiting is over, and to tell you the truth, I’m very (extremely, insanely, tremendously) … Continue reading
