I Followed The Rules

  I followed the Rules is the funniest book that I have read in a long time. It literally had me laughing out loud every time I picked it up, resulting in odd looks from Mr J and the holidayers on the beach. Even the seagulls were too scared to come and maul me of my snacks. I followed the Rules is the first book I have read by Joanna

The Girls By Lisa Jewell

I seem to go through moments of binge reading everything in sight to frequent dry spells of just not picking up a book. The last time I had one of these binge book fests was on my trip to Jamaica (which you can read about here). So, when you have hit an all time reading low, what do you do?
