Hey and howdy 🤠
I’m finally back home in Spain and I’m getting my last round of assignment marks back which means I’ve officially finished with my first year of university.
Looking back the hardest part about being at uni was cooking for myself. If anyone is heading off to Uni for the first time in September please start learning to cook now.

Nick and Charlie by Alice Oseman – My friend got me this as a going away present since I’m going to America in August and won’t be seeing them til January. I’ve already read it. I made the most of my train journey back from the Connan Gray concert to demolish this.

She Gets the Girl by Rachel Lippincott & Alysson Derrick – Rachel Lippincott is one of the authors of Five Feet Apart which I enjoyed but this book she wrote with her wife which is so cute. Again this was 99p and it’s a book I actually have had my eye on for a while so I’m excited to pick this up.
