I have always been an impulsive reader and I only managed to schedule my readings during my English Literature degree because I loved lessons and I was obsessed with the professors spoiling the books for me.

    Apparently, someone says Twitter does not sell books. Well, I beg to disagree. I came to know of Ruth Ware’s debut novel In a Dark, Dark Wood as I have been in the past years: over Twitter. In fact, during the most recent of my trips to Wales, I pestered a lovely, very kind Waterstones Cardiff employee because I could not find that “new crime novel, about a wedding and a murder”.
