2019 Reading Challenge

On 1 January 2019, I started my biggest reading challenge in years – 52 books in 52 weeks. With this, I’ve fallen back in love with reading and decided to start a blog.

      1. Those are probably the two that I have the least amount of recommendations for 😂

        All my Love, Detrick is a historical fiction that I LOVED. It’s about a jew and an aryan boy falling in love during the war. That is a really bad description, but its so good.

        Serpent & Dove is a historical fantasy that comes out on Sept 3rd. I loved it.

        Sky in the Deep is a historical fantasy that I am currently reading and loving.
