Books Read in 2014

  1. I tried to leave this comment before, not sure if it went through: I loved Just Kids!! I read it a month or two ago. I hope you try it again. And I HATED Wild. So much. I kept wanting to slap Cheryl. 😉

    • I will definitely be trying Just Kids again. I’ve gotten more and more into Patti Smith’s music since I put that book down so I definitely want to try again.

      I recently watched the film version of Wild too so that makes me want to pick up the book again. (Even though I had the same feelings as you the first time round haha)
