Mini Book Haul

Today I’m talking about new books on my YouTube channel. I’m definitely reading a lot of crime novels and thrillers at the moment but there’s still nice mix I think!    

REVIEW: Farangi Girl, Ashley Dartnell

This story I have literally had for YEARS. I read a review of Farangi Girl in a magazine back when it was published in 2011 and somehow ended up with two copies of this book and yet went six years before reading it…how is that even possible? But finally just before Christmas, I read Farangi…

Books I Forgot I Own!!

Hi guys, This video is basically a book haul, but made up of some of the books that have been hidden away at the back of my room. I pretty much forgot I owned them, so I thought I would share them with you in case you are looking for some reading inspiration! Thanks for…
