Good morning and welcome to my weekly round up inspired by Novels and Nonfiction. The weather has definitely become autumnal with wet and wild weather here in Jersey, which means it’s time to change the image I have for my weekly round up post. Next week I’m on a blog tour so this post maybe a day early, or I might just post it later in the day, I don’t want to confuse everyone too much! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway it’s time to grab yourself a cosy spot and a hot drink and have a browse at all the lovely links I have for you this week.
