Severed Heads, Broken Hearts.

One of my new year’s resolutions at the beginning of this year was to read more; I’ve never been a big reader, because I read quite slowly, so unless a book really grips me straight away I tend to give up on it. I’m more of a visual person, I loved books until they stopped having pictures and so I then switched to magazines! Honestly though, unless a book really grips me, unless it gets into my head and into my imagination and makes…
