For February being such a short month, I managed to get a decent amount of reading done. Though that extra day tacked on at the end didn’t necessarily help by the way. I probably would have gotten the same amount read as any other month. That is, I read a total of five books, butContinue reading “February 2020 Wrap Up”

Hello, book lovers! 💕 While it’s not the most favorited holiday during the year, Valentine’s Day is still a major holiday where the stores get all decked out with overpriced candy, chocolate, stuffed bears that say I LOVE YOU, and so much pink and red. I normally don’t like this holiday very much; who needsContinue reading “Top Romance Book Recommendations | 2020”
