  1. You managed to get so much on your to do list done! I also love that you enjoyed rereading the raven cycle and little fires everywhere. I loved all of those books as well. I am glad you enjoyed King of Scars as well because once I am done with Crooked Kingdom, that’s the one I want to read next.
