October Wrap Up: all the books I’ve read

It’s the end of October already… It feels like yesterday that it was only the first!

It was mostly celebrated in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. This…

I found the Halloween book tag over on pretty purple polka dots, and it looked super fun! CARVING PUMPKINS: What book would you carve up and light on fire? I can’t really think of any book I ever read that I disliked so bad that I wanted to set it on fire. However, I hated the mandatory readings for my Dutch class in high school. We had to read historical literature and it was overall a…
