If you read my August wrap up you’ll already know that August was pretty much a complete non-event for me for blogging and reading. If you didn’t already know then you do now!

4 pandas

🔮 soft magical colouring
🐱 werewolf girlfriends

🐱 supernatural baristas working in magical coffee shops
🔮 a non-binary centaur who is obsessed with all things snacks, gossip and their centaur butt
🐱 self-acceptance, love & friendship

Reason for not giving it a 5 star rating is, like other readers, I felt that there were times when the story became rushed especially at the end and there were a few times when the story was a little confusing but otherwise it’s the best magical fluff that you all need in your lives
