My Friday Thoughts – The Book I Will Not Finish?

Hello, people of the internet!

For those who don’t know, I very rarely do not finish books because there is always a chance the book may improve later on. Yes, it would be better if I just left them, but there is a voice in my head that constantly says, “You never know, maybe the book gets better? Why waste the opportunity?”

Call It Dog – Book Review

Hello, people of the internet!

I bought this book about a year ago because it was set in a country that I haven’t read a lot about: South Africa. Since I’m always after something different, I thought this book was right up my street!

So, I have finally read it and this is what I think of it!

Side note: I will be talking about the ending a bit, so I’ll put a spoiler warning here.
