Another haul! I haven’t been reading as much lately, mainly because of NaNoWriMo. So far this month I’ve read One Day, which I’ve already posted a review for. I have a few books, either from the library or that I have bought, they aren;t new off the shelf ones, most are old paperback that I bought from a charity shop. But nevertheless!
