I love reading, like if reading was a job, I would love to share with you some of my favorite books and ones I want to read as well! If you’re ever wondering what book I have my nose in as I walk around campus or see me cuddled up with a cup of tea and my stuffed animals in a corner reading, it’s probably one of these! Would love for you to comment on your favorites, too!
