MY NEW FAVORITE AUTHOR

Last month, #bookstagram convinced me to read a book. I’m sure you can relate, I’m sure I’m not the only one who picked up a book purely for the hype. Well, it turned out to be a great book.

EVIE, ELEANOR, EMILINE, AND DAISY

Only girls and almost only names that start with an ‘E’. I only noticed this when I started writing the post, but isn’t it cool? So, I read not only one, but TWO hyped up books this month! And they were… well, you’ll find out below. I’ve also read a terrible one and a really great one in between them so it’s been a rollercoaster of a month. Here they are: Notice: JavaScript is required for this content.
