Hey, everyone! How are you all doing?
I’ve been on a slow reading phase, if there is such a thing, the past few weeks and I can’t seem to get out of it. It’s not quite a reading slump yet, but reading a 300+ pages book that usually took 3-4 days now take at least a week to finish. Still, that didn’t discourage me from checking NetGalley and moon over the new titles they add which most of it, I can’t even request. Sorry for moaning about that a lot but it can really get frustrating sometimes. Anyway, I still manage to bagged 5 approvals this week, which isn’t bad at all. Check them out!

One letter a week for fifteen years. 780 identical white envelopes brimming with my sister’s darkest secrets. All the intimate details of a life as different to mine as could possibly be.
I read each letter slowly to make sure I understand it perfectly, one day very soon it will be a matter of life and death…
