I know you think I'm a crazy person. You're probably right. But this usually happens to me once or twice a year. I think my last time was with The Girl on the Train. Has anyone else experienced this? And now I just keep thinking I need to read the ending for myself. Sigh.
Anyway... determined to reconnect with my real life, I decided to make a huge batch of no-bakes with Reed. Toddlers and chocolate. It was the only logical solution.
Yep, that's right. #ReedCooks is back! Y'all ready for this?!
(Also ignored. It gets easier the more you do it.)
I love how he thinks he's getting away with something. Mr. Rebellious, right there.
Now that the cares of The Nightingale are past, I have moved on to Wonder by R. J. Polacio. It is a delight! Please feel free to leave any book rec's in the the comments along with thoughts on the recipe!
