The Book Lover Tag

Favourite Things

Well, raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens are all quite well and good, but they're not exactly my thing. This week, I come to you with a post I've wanted to do for a very long time: a list of my favourite things. It's abridged, of course, but here is a little glimpse into…
