My ‘Half Price Books’ Haul

Before August wrapped up, I visited ‘Half Price Books’ for the first time. I’ve always heard many positive things about this affordable bookshop, but there are none over in New Jersey.

My Thoughts on ‘Wish’ by Barbara O’ Connor

I discovered ‘Wish’ while searching for another story at a local department store. When I walk into this location, the first stop I always head to is the large table of books that’s on display. It’s usually a mix of new releases and titles that have been out for a while. I didn’t come acrossContinue reading “My Thoughts on ‘Wish’ by Barbara O’ Connor”
