Myself and my very good best pal Charlotte from Wonderfully Bookish found ourselves co-reading Toffee by Sarah Crossan recently. We love a blog hop so decided to review it for each other! That means you can head over to her blog to read my review of Toffee! We really want to make more of an effort with co-blogging, because it’s a lot of fun to take over someone else’s page for a little while, let us know if you like it or have any ideas. Make sure to keep reading for Charlotte’s review!
