December 2, 2021

As Thanksgiving break just came to an end, the next thing on everyone’s mind is the festive holidays. Even though winter break is three weeks away, it’s important to start preparing as early as possible and what’s a better way to relax over break than curling up with a cup of hot chocolate and reading a good book? So, here’s a few of my favorites that are perfect to read over this winter break.
