Sophie’s Favourite Books of 2018 (Blogmas)

chatIt’s nice to reach the end of the year and try and focus on the positives as much as possible. I always love looking back at books I’ve read, films and TV shows I’ve watched and new hobbies/interests I may have picked up.

If they feel too real to me, in terms of something I’ve felt or been through before, I’ve had to put it down and stop. Continue reading
