Hello beautiful people!
Well, I’ve made a decision to discontinue “Top Ten Tuesday” posts (…I may have already mentioned this in my monthly wrap up but that’s okay). I love them but they’re pretty long and take a while to finish; this is probably the reason as to why I started “Top 5 Wednesdays”. So…this is my LAST and FINAL “Top Ten Tuesday”.
If you ever have an inking to read them, please look under the “Bookish Posts” subheading or use the search bar.
Remember that you can find the weekly topics at The Broke and the Bookish page!
