It’s been a while since i’ve done a tag for the blog, and the wonderful Charlotte from Wonderfully Bookish (she’s my best pal but also wonderful), tagged me in this over on her YouTube channel. I’m not going to be doing any other kind of new year post (apart from my wrap-up of 2019, i’m incredibly late i know), so let the tag commence!
