Ok, I am about to make things either very easy or very difficult for my #blitsyhistorymonthswap match... 🙈
🖤 I love coffee, tea, and hot chocolate (in that order); 🖤candles; 🖤 sweet and savory, but spicy most of all; 🖤 socks- bonus points if they‘re toe socks or super fuzzy 😍; 🖤 bookmarks and magnets. #bhmswap @Chelleo
Oh, and the tagged book is one from the tippy top of my TBR that I do not yet own.
