What I read this month

It’s been a busy month of hunting things down for the reno and running around and picking up and dropping off and meeting and stress and calls and emails and then rinsing and repeating.

What I read this month

Well, that’s more like it. I got a lot more read this month–dare I say, a more typical amount for me–than I have of late, home reno time-suck be damned. One of the titles was the first Skullduggery Pleasant, which was a re-read from a couple of years back purely in order to gear up…
