Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday is a bi-weekly feature created by me, Jade of SortofBeautiful.com. I created it as a way to reminisce, recall, and remember all of those great books and movies I devoured and loved as a kid. Reading has always been a big part of my life, and sometimes it’s fun to remember the books and things that brought me joy as a kid. So once a week I’ll highlight a book, series, or movie that I used to love when I was younger. I’ll share the cover, title, synopsis, and why I loved it. If anyone else would like to participate, feel free to join in by grabbing the button.
