Wishlist – Waterstones

This list has been posted mostly because I’m currently having a bad day where my anxiety is high, I’m angry, I have an intense migraine and I’m running off fumes having had under five hours sleep. But, I soldier on. I love making lists. It is one of the things in life that calms me…

J.K. Rowling

I couldn’t talk about favourite authors without mentioning J.K. Rowling. It was her books that introduced me to the world of reading and made me want to better my ability to read.
