And my heart is hurting from the news this week. There is just too much terrible news this week.
So, this is going to be a short and unusual links post. I'm just going to share some things that made me smile this week.
First, though: I'm running a GoodReads giveaway for Hemmed In. Enter it for a chance to win a free paperback copy of Hemmed In!
This story about a little girl who saw a bride and thought she was a princess from a book cover she loves is sweet.
Auckland lights up for Matariki.
An indigenous viewpoint on a Van Gogh exhibition. This is really interesting, so it is my "if you only read one" recommendation this week.
