Hi everyone! Today's post is pretty much me just showing you what I would like to read this week. I ended up not being as successful as I wanted last week. However, I am hoping this week will be better reading wise. I only have one assignment due and that needs to be handed in on Tuesday which means that I can focus a little more on reading this week. I also have a short working weekend this week which really makes things easier.
Without any more hesitation, here are the books that I would like to get to this week!
- Small Spaces by Sarah Epstein
We don’t pick and choose what to be afraid of. Our fears pick us.

At the time nobody believed Tash, and she has since come to accept that Sparrow wasn’t real. Now fifteen and mute, Mallory’s never spoken about the week she went missing.
As disturbing memories resurface, Tash starts to see Sparrow again. And she realises Mallory is the key to unlocking the truth about a dark secret connecting them. Does Sparrow exist after all? Or is Tash more dangerous to others than she thinks?
