A glorious morning my stabby lovelies!!! We're running on beach time today, so sorry not sorry for the later post! I am in a wonderfully relaxed mood, sitting on a balcony, listening to the waves.

#makeoutmarrymurdermonday

What if instead of wishes, you were granted three book worlds to enter?! Which worlds would you choose??? For today's stabnanigans, I wanted to take the magic of the djinn and cast some wishes. I found the lamp, but my genie made me murder one of these books, so, I suppose the old adage, careful [...]
