World Music Recommendations for Cultured People

Hi everyone! If you're reading this you're probably on freyathefrypan.blogspot.com. Either that or you're getting this in your email inbox if you subscribed or on Goodreads where my blog is synced with my author profile. Well if you have time, I'd really appreciate it if you could go on the main site as I want feedback on the new layout design. I put in a lot of work into giving it a sleek new modern layout so that it doesn't look like a website from the 90s... although I suppose the mere idea of running a blog is a 90s thing now.

The Boy Who Played Tiger


really liked it
