Hey, friends! I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes from The Trap by Melanie Raabe. I saw this book a while ago, snapped a photo of the cover and have wanted to read it ever since. If you’re anything like me, your to-read list is massive. Well, I finally got around to it!

Several years later, she’s a successful writer who is unable to leave her home, she must find a way to fight off her demons and try to find justice for her dearly loved sister.

I love sharing and hearing stories, both are such great ways to do so! In my free time, I love to drink coffee and hang out with my dogs. I have a great big German Shepherd and a tiny Porkie (Pomeranian & Yorkie).
