Annie’s Fall TBR

Nothing makes my bibliophilic heart smile more than the drop in temperature.  The leaves fall, the cozy cable knit sweaters come out, the autumnal candles get lit after months of sitting and waiting for the air to turn cold.  Life turns into an autumn-themed Pinterest board (at least I wish it did) as the chill … Continue reading Annie’s Fall TBR

Annie’s Favorite Book Covers
