I hear what you’re saying – “you’re not a book blogger!” – and you are absolutely right. But even though I’m not a book blogger it doesn’t mean that I don’t like to read. (I just don’t read as much as many of you out there. Quality over quantity *ahem* it’s not personal or aimed […]

Daniella Writes

I don’t generally listen to audiobooks. I haven’t enjoyed them since I was a kid listening to A Series of Unfortunate Events and Artemis Fowl.

Setelah Robert Galbraith (pseudonym JK Rowling) selesai dengan The Cuckoo’s Calling, sekarang the Silkworm.
