    A Lonely Girl Is A Dangerous Thing Book Review

    When I was recommended this book by Allen & Unwin to review, I was pretty optimistic.

    Get A Life, Chloe Brown Book Review

    I am so glad that I know about this author now and that I finally got my hands on this book thanks to my local library. It also felt fitting that I was able to read and review this book especially in the light of the recent and current events with the black lives matter movement. If you don’t tend to read very diversely and perhaps don’t know many black or bipoc authors, I’d sincerely urge you to widen your reading a little bit and look through the hundreds of black authored book recommendations on BookTube, the blogging community, Bookstagram and Book Twitter. You’d be surprised to find such amazing…
