Peacock Finds: Fall And Winter 2013 Book Reads- Biographies

Alyssa Manners Fall Winter Reading List

I’m sure by now you’ve read or at least glimpsed at my About Me section, so you have an idea of who I am and my background. I have a joint degree in English and Journalism, so clearly my love for writing knows no limits. But I am also very passionate about reading.

Lest you’ve been under a rock for the last year or so, you’ve seen a major fashion transition back to the ’90s. Hat to the back, basketball shorts and the likes have been on hand so often that the only way to differentiate athletes from athletically inspired celebrities is to look at their footwear.
