Just A Thought

Time. It's something that we're told moves quickly. But then we're told that it takes time for wounds to heal, and realities to be met. It's slow. Its going at it's own pace. Time.

Book Review: Circe by Madeline Miller

Fully bandwagon hopped and bought this book because of how much I was seeing it on Instagram and how much buzz it was getting. #noshame. On top of the fact that it was shortlisted for the 2019 Women's Prize, but lost out to An American Marriage, so that MUST mean I have great taste in… Continue reading Book Review: Circe by Madeline Miller
