Hey y’all, it feels nice to get around to these reviews. When you read so much in a week, getting the words out can feel overwhelming. Now that I’ve had some to let the stories marinate, here are my thoughts.

Books of the Month ~ July

Comments 2 Standard

Hey y’all, I’m starting to see a pattern with these months. It’s like, one month I get one book and the next month I get multiple. Kind of weird, right?

WWW Wednesday is a meme that was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived by Sam of Taking on a World of Words. It’s all based on three simple questions.
