What the Seven Things tag really comes down to is getting to know the blogger. Ironically, I've always found it to be a bit of a challenge to come up with these lists. It always comes down to figuring out which things I've been open about and which have just never come up. So, here…

Tales from Behind the Window [Edanur Kuntman]

In many ways, Tales from Behind the Window by Edanur Kuntman is an extremely difficult read.

For me, the experience…
