The Characters Who Made “Meh” Books Tolerable

The Characters Who Made “Meh” Books Tolerable

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

I Wish There Were More _______ In Books

Books I absolutely cannot predict what is this madness. Books with amazing relationship dynamics that make my heart flutter. I also think that we all have a few things that we love dearly that we wish we could find more of in books.  Things that we wish were written about a little more!  I have a bunch, and I’m actively seeking more so if you know any, please let me know in the comments so I can add […]
