Conclusion? If it’s a psychological thriller, it must be a pretty damn good one! Because I have enough with alcoholic and amnesia women.

We Need Kindness

How Did You Get into Reading?

Every bookworm I encounter has a story to tell. Finding out how they started is always a heartwarming tale of discovery and exploration. But how come reading still seems to be an activity that very little people around us actively invest in? It’s as if picking up a book is a taboo act that should…

The Perks of Co-Blogging
