Women’s Prize Reviews #1: Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams

Who would have thought that I would actually stick with it and finish a book of the Women's Prize for Fiction 2020 longlist? Not me! But here we are. I decided to start my journey with Queenie, because it's one of the only ones on the longlist that I previously owned and that I was… Continue reading Women’s Prize Reviews #1: Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams
