Two Good Reads

Today I want to share with you two books that I’ve read recently and enjoyed: Rosamund Lupton’s Afterwards was an entertaining and unusual read. I loved her first book, Sister, and I think her sophomore effort was just as good. There’s something about the way that she writes that I … Read more ››
