I feel guilty when I walk out the bookshop without buying anything but I also feel guilty when I walk out with 5 books do you see my problem?

OMG. I joked to my doctor that I needed a prescription for reading and she gave me this.

Does your doctor take Aetna?

For best results, find a window seat.

tangerine-treasure said: Hey! I adore your blog and I have found so many great books because of it!! So I recently finished “State of Wonder” (loved it!!!!) and was hoping that maybe you could recommend some other good adventure books? Preferably with a female lead. However, the adventure could be something thrilling or even just a fun road trip! Thanks so much for your time! =)
Thank you for the compliment! I am glad I have been able to be of help! Hopefully, the books below will help you find more books too! They are sort of a random collection of adventure-type stories with a female lead! It kind of worked out the the bottom three were more serious adventures and the top three are more supernatural or YA adventures. Let me know if I can give you more of one or the other!
1. Panic by Lauren Oliver
2. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
3. The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova 
4. The Invisible Mountain by Carolina De Robertis
5. Away by Amy Bloom
6. All Woman and Springtime by Brandon W. Jones
Thanks so much for the question! Be sure to click the titles to see their Goodreads pages!
