I‘m tossing up for tonight‘s read. Should I read the third book in the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire or dive straight in to the fifth book in the Josephine Tey series by Nicola Upson?🤔 #decisionsdecisions #fantasyorcrime #bookworldproblems

Lindy I bailed on Sugar Sky after 40 pages, but that‘s just because I wasn‘t in the mood. There‘s a great scene involving a vagina early on, however. 2y
