These are the books I’ve been enjoying and think you might enjoy, too! Just know, when you purchase a book from this shop, I may earn a small commission from Amazon that helps sustain the work I do at BlossomWriter. You get a brand new book (at the same great Amazon price!) and I get to keep creating brand new content for the blog. It’s a win-win!
