Not enough cancer. It sounds ridiculous. Or maybe it doesn’t. But there is a little voice in my head I have to fight periodically that tells me “You didn’t have enough cancer to do what you’re doing.

I’m a bit of a book junkee. The only genres I generally steer clear of are modern day romantic fiction and sci-fi.

But if you love to sit with a coffee and a warm blanket and pass a day reading, I recommend these five. Everything Happens for a Reason: And Other Lies I’ve Loved Kate Bowler This was so…
