Weekend Book Buzz – 8/9 September 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! I’m buzzing for more reasons than one this weekend, having travelled to Melbourne to spend two days with my dear friend Rel (from Relz Reviewz). What a treat to be able to spend the weekend together! I do hope you’ve been able to take the time to relax this weekend, be it with a good friend or a good book. ūüôā
