Here is a little run down of the books I’ve received in the last week. Some of them are from the publishers in return for an honest review via Netgalley and Bookbridgr and the others are books that I have very kindly been sent by the publishers to read and enjoy. I am currently reading Paper Swans by Jessica Thompson.
