Thanks for linking to me! I read Little Thieves as well this month, I’m obsessed with it 😂
SAME. I actually only read it this month because of you (idk, if you know but this is Amanda from Twitter hahah). So, thanks for pushing me to read one of my newest favs!!
OH HI I DID NOT 😂 I’m so bad at matching Twitter names to blogs.
Hi! hahaha, I didn’t think so. But it’s understandable because my twitter is me, but the blog isn’t as easily identifiable as me unless you’re looking at the one picture of me and Antonia on our ‘about the readers’ page lol.
Thanks for the shout out! 😊
Of course! Gotta show love to my fellow bloggers doing the hard work out here!!
Thank you for sharing!

Thank you! November will be a bit more unpredictable. October had a few sequels I knew I was going to love.
