    God, the beginning is quite harsh! But I love the title of the book, it’s so pretty! I’d love to go into the Wild, every now and then, if that sounds even remotely sane XD On a different note, would you like to be part of my blog tour for ‘Confessions of a Harry Potter Fan’? Drop me an email, if yes :)
