Another book review, finally! This time I shall rave about ‘Elizabeth Is Missing’ by Emma Healey. Here goes:
Whilst everybody else is getting started with their Christmas decorations, I am not yet finished with my Irish Autumn series. But the calendar still displays November, which I count as autumn, so it’s okay. I actually created this blog as an “arty” outlet of sorts, but it became a bit book-heavy lately.
