When Stars Are Scattered

I saw this one reviewed by @andreabeatrizarango on bookstagram a few months ago (maybe a year ago? - my conceptual handle on time passing right now is questionable at best).

So, I’m back to sending my thanks to the universe and hoping it finds its… Continue reading The Magic Fish
