Summer 2017 Wrap Up!

SUMMER 2017.jpg

Summer is almost over people and that means sweater weather is coming. Although there is nothing like cuddling up on the sofa in front of the fire place with some hot cocoa/coffee and a good book, I have to admit that summer is my favourite time of the year for reading. I love being able to read outside in the warm weather by the water with natural light. That being said, let’s get into all the books that I have read in summer of 2k17!
