  1. There’s some on here I’ve wanted to read for a while like The Surface Breaks and Then She Was Gone! I loved Eleanor Oliphant and Simon vs the Homosapiens Agenda too! Great post you’ve made me feel as though I don’t read enough though haha!

  2. The pictures are gorgeous! Can you maybe make a post about props 101 or something? Like, when starting out, what’s the best way to collect them while making them cohesive aesthetically?

    If you already posted one, link please ❤

  3. Great Alone was such an emotional rollercoaster. I loved it to bits. And Eleanor is one of my favourite 2018 characters for sure. Great list! Looks like you read some amazing books so far this year. 🙂 ❤
