This post is very slightly different to usual ‘TBR List’ posts. I’m focusing on a few books that have been sitting on my shelves for far too long but I’ve never read. I’m not even entirely sure why this is the case. There are books I bought thinking ‘this will be my next read’, but… Continue reading BOOKS I WANT TO READ IN 2019
