If I can convince you to buy just one book this year, please let it be this!

‘Too little information and you’re blind, too much and you’re blinded.

You may have seen me mention The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (titled The Seven ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle in the US) oh only about 5236 times so far this year.

The Bank Holiday Book Tag

I was tagged by Amy   to post this fun Book Tag originally created by Cora for Bank Holiday Weekend. It’s August so of course we’ve had rain for most of the weekend, though we did manage to visit West Bay- aka the beach setting used to film BroadChurch– for a few sunny hours on Saturday. As it’s taken me til the end of BH weekend to post my contribution I won’t be tagging folks, but do feel free to join in and credit Cora.
