    I am curious to know if The Other Typist is on your to-read list. It will be interesting to see what you think. I’m currently reading it. :) Ta ta for now.

    • Cassie says:

      I haven’t heard of this one :/ and I’ll admit I’m a bit out of the loop. What is it about? I will look it up on Goodreads now, but I want your opinion.

      • Kimberly says:

        I think the beginning was really hard to get into. I liked it but then I didn’t at the same time. I think it’s about many things. What stood out most for me was the ideas of society; female oppression/breakthrough for women. (It’s right on the cusp) Some things and characters have made me so mad and that’s good. Maybe you looked it up on Goodreads already. It’s hard to stop from reading other’s reviews until I’m done!

      • Kimberly says:

        I haven’t finished yet. And I know I need to! I’ve wrote a little, but not enough. I’ll let you know. Thanks for asking :)
