Someone please tell me why i’ve been putting this book off for so long? I went through a stage a while ago i felt brave enough to buy it and have it on my shelf as something i might actually read in the future. One of my friends absolutely adores this book, and with a gentle push from her to choose it for this months book club pick, i finally picked it up.
