Started reading an ebook from the library of the Hazel Wood during my break at work to keep going with the #summersendreadathon! I got through 65 pages of it already, which isn‘t half bad!

Clwojick A perfect example of #CoversThatPullYouIn 😍 I still really want to read this book! I just love the cover art! 2d

Nothing like a spur of the moment decision to join a #readathon, right? I need a little bit of an extra push for my reading right now, as I‘m trying to work my way through C. S. Lewis‘ That Hideous Strength, so I thought why not! My only real TBR is that book and a re-read of the Inkheart trilogy, but I‘ll try to read more! #summersendreadathon

First of all, thanks again for sending this to me @WilliamMorrowBooks !

1. My new book is called out to the book club and I have no idea what it is.
2. I‘m working on one that‘s currently called Wild Roses! It might change though
3. Yes! I‘ve wanted to be a novelist since I was thirteen, and ever since then, my brain just comes up with characters and flags them at me!
4. Mostly for myself, right now.
