The best thing ever in the history of the world: Books and free stuff and winning, oh my

Greetings, loved ones. (Please read in the voice from the beginning of the Katy Perry song California Girls, without thinking I enjoy either that song or the musician Katy Perry.)

I have been gone for a while, and for that I am sorry. If you are my friend on Goodreads you know I am having a bit of a strange time right now (shoutout to my attention seeking status updates am I right ladies??). But I am movin’ up and movin’ on and I have VERY EXCITING NEWS! Continue reading
