Today's topic: Six heartwrenching endings to a book series I'll keep this list as spoiler-free as possible! This is going to be a difficult one to compile - I don't think I've read many series with painful/bittersweet/sad endings - definitely more standalones.

This week: Which characters would I name my kids after? Now this is tricky... do I pick just names I love or should the character also be worthy of naming my child after? Some characters who I absolutely LOVE have names that I wouldn't choose - e.g. Chaol because the way I pronounce it is … Continue reading #SixforSunday: Six characters I’d name my kids after
