Books I Wish I’d Had As A Teen

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

If I had a time machine that helped me go back and visit teenage Aoife, there are more than a couple of books I’d bring her.

Why I Haven’t Finished These Series?

Book series and I have a very weird relationship. I can sometimes read a book completely out of sync and then get confused when something that happened in the second book is continued and developed in book three.

Every year, I love seeing the little update that Goodreads sends you. It’s my favourite email from the early year, where I get to actually see what my reading year looked like, rather than guessing what it looked like.
