Bookish Buzzwords

buzz·word

  1. a word or phrase, often an item of jargon, that is fashionable at a particular time or in a particular context.

Hey, guys, it’s been awhile so glad to be doing a blog post after a week of silence, hope you are well.

Synopsis

Genre: Contemporary, Modern Classic, Thriller, Literary Fiction

520 pages

“Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it.”
