The first half of 2018 has been good to me reading-wise. I've read so many good books already and I hope my good luck will continue on in the next half of the year! I have rated all of these books either four or five stars and there was something about each of these books that I really loved reading.
Hi everyone! Today I am posting my June wrap-up. I really don't know where the time went last month. I had a pretty good time relaxing for most of the month because I am on my mid-year break. I'm fairly certain that I start uni again around 16 July, which seems annoyingly soon. Until then … Continue reading June wrap-up

Sometimes I really love the premise of a book and look forward to reading it, but sometimes the reviews start coming in and I feel discouraged about picking it up. This is what happened to most of the books on this list and it is unlikely that I will ever read them.
Before Let You Go is essentially about the strong bond between two sisters who have struggled deeply as children. The readers get snippets of what they endured through Annie's letters every second chapter. But the heart of the story is what is happening in the present, which is from the perspective of Lexie.
