It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #9

Hosted by Kathryn: It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever-growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone.


What I Read Last Week:

A big, fat nothin. I curse They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera. It has put me into a book slump. AND LAST WEEK WAS MY UNI BREAK. I had all the time ever to read. Good news is, I did heaps of assignments over the break– yippee!


Hi this is me, in a book slump. 


So I guess you can say, I’ve been reading:
