My All-Time Favourite Books (By Genre!) | rosie abigail

Books, books, and more books; the only thing to have kept me company during my sick leave! Thanks to an un-yet diagnosed issue with my very well prodded and tested intestines, I’ve been off for the past three weeks.

Five Books That Changed My Life | rosie abigail
