So I’m borrowing this feature for today from imyril, who was herself tagged by another blogger, but the feature itself all began way back when with The Perpetual Page Turner. In lieu of new reviews, while I gear up for Wyrd and Wonder with as much reading as I can focus on, here’s an A to Z of me!
Got something a bit different for you today, folks!
