True to my word, I’ve been getting better about writing and sharing reviews for the books I’ve been reading and enjoying. I’m still catching up a bit but having good book recommendations is SO important when you’re looking for ways to keep you mind busy during the current pandemic situation. Stay safe, stay home, and keep your nose in a book!
