So in conclusion, I really can relate to wicked pervert Christian.
I suggest the author buys herself a big thesaurus with all the money she's made.

There is something about these 2 books (The Luminaries and The Inner Planets) that has led me to profoundly reflect on whether I had expressed all of my personal potential so far. The Inner Planets are described as means to support expression of the… Read more
