7 things I’m excited to cosy up and watch this autumn

So, it's officially cosy season and typically, i'm more of a book reader and serial re-watcher... but there's a few new TV shows/series I'm excited about, coming out this autumn. Don't worry, if you're more of a literature person yourself, i'll still have my bookish posts going up this Blogtober, but here's a change to go with… Continue reading 7 things I’m excited to cosy up and watch this autumn
