Ready Player One. I read the first chapter and then gave it to my husband to read (because I thought he’d really like it and because I have plenty of other books I wanted to read) I really liked that first chapter, so I…

Books I'm taking with me on holiday

Tonight I’m leaving on holiday. *does happy dance* We’re driving to the South of France *hurray* with two little kids *sigh* and it will take us about 12 hours… *sigh again* Of course I’m taking books with me!!!
