tbr list

So, I have an addiction. A problem, if you like. It grows exponentially, it consumes me like nothing ever has, and I don’t want to make it stop. It’s one of the greatest loves of my life, and, I honestly believe this unconditional love of mine will stand the test of time. If you haven’t guessed already – it’s reading. Reading. Books. Literature. And, here’s my never-ending TBR list…
