Don’t Book Back // Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls. by @LeandraMedine

last read... Over five days, I digested Leandra Medine's Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls. Being that it was published back in 2013, I am late on reading this book.

last read... I read Jennifer Close's The Hopefuls at the end of last summer while lounging around the pool in Barcelona during my honeymoon. The perfect read for the occasion, it was easily digestible between two days. Particularly in the second half of the book, I found the protagonist to be deliciously despicable to follow, [...]
