I went to my favorite book shop last weekend just to find out out they were closing down soon. This makes me so sad!!! The good thing though was, that every single book in the shop was on sale. So my parents bought me like a thousand and gazillion new reads.
This came just in time for my 3 months summer break. Loads of time for reading, right?
Now it is your turn, which books would you like me to write a review about? Please vote!
