February 2020 Wrap-Up

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Welcome to my February wrap-up in which I read my entire TBR before Contemporary-A-Thon. I’ll be honest that after CAT, I felt a little bit slumpy but I tried to power through. With that being said, let’s get into the books I read in February 2020. If you want to hear about the books I read during CAT, you can check out my wrap-up ūüėÄ

38980

1. The Princess Diaries

The first book I finished this month was¬†Princess Diaries¬†and what a place to start as this book was nothing like I remembered. I’m sure most of you know the story of Mia finding out that she’s a princess and how her life changes. While most of the story is the same, this book is pretty dated with a lot of comments the characters make and Lilly’s entire protest idea. Plus Michael is 18 and Mia is 14 which is pretty gross. Overall, it was nostalgic read and part of a future post but 3/5 stars

35608636. sy475

2. The Unrequited

The second book I finished was a dark romance between a student and her college professor. This book reminds me a lot of the TV show,¬†You¬†if you’ve watched that as it features our main character, Layla being a lot like Joe. I don’t want to give away too many details as I think it’s better to go in blind. Personally, I thought this book was good up until about 75% mark in which things took a drastic turn and ended on a note that I didn’t enjoy. The ending completely changed the book for me and I wish the author would have taken a different route with it.¬†4/5 stars

452306

3. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Similar to¬†Princess Diaries, this is another book for a post. I haven’t read this book since I was young and honestly, I was surprised at how good it was. If you don’t know, this is a book about four friends who share a pair of jeans during the first summer that they’re not all together. Overall, I thought this book was as good although there was another weird age-gap element between Bridget and Eric that I just couldn’t ignore. That was really the only thing that bothered me but everything else is pretty good.¬†4/5 stars

47199239. sx318

4. The Guy on the Right

I heard a lot of buzz about this book in 2019 so I decided to put it on my books to read in 2020 list. This book is a friends-to-lovers romance between the “nice guy” and a girl he meets at a party. While I thought this book has an incredible romance, I thought the two leads could be annoying at times. Lance wasn’t always the “nice guy” and Lainey felt more like she was being difficult to further the plot. It could be annoying but overall didn’t hinder my enjoyment that much. 4/5 stars

39988

5. Matilda

The next book I picked up was¬†Matilda¬†which I hadn’t read before now. I originally started out reading this out loud to my interest (I’ll call him that!). He kept making me stop so I decided to read it all on my own since I was sick of stopping. I thought this book was really fun although some of the adult characters were just horrible. I’m sure that was Roald Dahl’s intention but holy hell, they were monsters. Regardless, this was such a fun read.¬†4/5 stars

44569988. sy475

6. Untouchable

The next book I finished was¬†Untouchable¬†by Talia Hibbert. Last month, I read¬†A Girl Like Her¬†which is the first book in the series and loved it. This one wasn’t a new favorite but I still thought it was good. It follows Ruth’s sister, Hannah and the romance she has with her employer/old friend, Nate. I thought it was cute but at times, needlessly dramatic. I think I might take a bit of a break from reading her backlist as it felt like I was slogging through it. Regardless, I’m happy to say that I read it.¬†4/5 stars

44804083

7. Come Tumbling Down 

After getting done with Contemporary-A-Thon, I was in a bit of a reading slump. To try to combat that, I decided to read something that wasn’t contemporary. I got a library card from my local library and they had this one without a hold. It’s the 5th book in the¬†Wayward Children¬†series and it’s basically a sequel to the 1st book. Honestly, I thought this was great and I loved getting to see these characters again.

The only thing I didn’t like was how it ended. I wish that the event at the end would have been handled differently as Alexis noted in the book.¬†Overall, it was a nice change-of-pace from reading all of that contemporary. While it wasn’t my favorite of the series, I enjoyed it.¬†4/5 stars

9972053

8. If You Ask Me 

For some reason, I’m really not in the mood to read any contemporary. In my upcoming post, you’ll see why I picked this book. Anyways, this is a short memoir by Betty White that I listened to on audio since she narrates it. While I enjoyed getting a look at her life, the advice she has and her adventures, it felt a little bit disjointed. If I had been more cohesive, I probably would have enjoyed it more but it was still good.¬†4/5 stars

9145079. sy475

9. Here We Go Again: My Life In Television

After loving Betty White’s other book, I decided to pick up¬†Here We Go Again: My Life In Television. This was a pretty informative book, both about Betty but also about the television world as a whole. There was a bit of overlap between this one and my previous read but it was still pretty good. Of course, my favorite sections were when she talked about¬†Golden Girls¬†but I thought this book was just delightful. Maybe it’s because Betty narrates it again but I just love it.¬†4/5 stars


Those are all the additional books I read this month aside from Contemporary-A-Thon. I might have one before the month ends but I’ll probably just include that one in my March wrap-up. Hopefully, March is filled with even more books I enjoy so I’m going to cross my fingers. ūüôā

My Favorite‚ĶBook Recommendation from a Fellow Blogger + March Prompts

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! For this week’s topic, I decided to go with a somewhat unique one and thus this one was born. Personally, I think it’s really fun to think back about the recommendations you’ve gotten and who gave them to you. For me, I’ve gotten a lot of good recommendations from fellow bloggers so I figured why not shout out of those out? ūüėÄ

BookishlyRebecca is now the host of the ‚ÄúMy Favorite‚ÄĚ meme, a weekly meme posted on Wednesday. Originally started by¬†Maureen‚Äôs Books, she agreed to let me take over.

As Maureen described it, ‚ÄúIn this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let‚Äôs face it. The world can be a dark place and it‚Äôs to share something positive. Each week I will post a new My Favorite.. post about one subject and I‚Äôll tell you all about it. And the best part? Everyone is welcome to join. The only thing you‚Äôll have to do is sign up on my weekly post, link back to this post and visit others.‚ÄĚ

At the end of each month, I’ll post the prompts for the following month so be sure to check back then!

March Topics

For March, I’m going with a movie theme. I have a post coming up so you’ll see how it plays into that soon ūüėČ

  • March 4th: My Favorite…Movie of 2019
  • March 11th: My Favorite…Movie from Childhood
  • March 18th: My Favorite…Book-to-Movie Adaptation
  • March 25th: My Favorite…Movie of All-Time


When coming up with my answer for this prompt, it was hard to narrow it down. There is one book that seems to stand above the rest, though. I feel like I mention this recommendation a lot but it really did help me. My favorite book recommendation from a fellow blogger has to be It’s Called a Breakup Because It’s Broken: The Smart Girl’s Break-Up Buddy which was recommended to me by Kristin from Kristin Kraves Books.

She’s basically a blogging queen so when she recommended this, I immediately went to Barnes & Noble to buy it. I devoured it in a day and it made me feel so much lighter than I had in days. I was still reeling from my breakup and it felt nice to read something that I understood or that understood me. Honestly, I don’t know if I would’ve gotten over my breakup if it wasn’t for that book. So thank you, Kristin, because you helped me out a ton with that ‚̧

Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 books that caused a major hangover

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! For this week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic, it’s all about books that gave us a major hangover. Right now, I kind of feel like I’m in a bit of a slump since I haven’t read anything since Contemporary-A-Thon. Hopefully with my new library card though, I’ll be able to find something. Anyways, let’s get into my picks. ūüėÄ

If you’re interested in participating in Top 5 Tuesday, all you have do is write up your post and pingback to one of Shanah’s posts. Make sure you pingback to her posts and not just her blog so she can add you to the list.


44281049

5. Lucky Caller

The first book is a more recent book hangover as I’m still experiencing it. For Contemporary-A-Thon, I read Lucky Caller¬†by Emma Mills and loved it. I’m still thinking about it and that’s been over a week ago. However, the hangover for it has made me want to read less and instead, just think about how nothing is going to be as good as this book is. I know that’s not true but right now, it really feels like it lol.

42280482. sy475

4.¬†Can’t Escape Love

This one was more of a series hangover than a book hangover. Last year, I decided to read the entirety of the Reluctant Royals¬†series. While I enjoyed all of them, my favorite is Can’t Escape Love. Since there was a bit of a wait at my library for the last book, this book gave me a major hangover. It was such an adorable and diverse romance that I had heart eyes despite it only being like 130ish pages. Plus the last book in the series didn’t end up being as enjoyable as this one so my hangover carried into the last book, too.

42357635. sy475

3. With the Fire On High

Another book that gave me a major hangover was¬†With The Fire On High. I read this while I was buddy-reading¬†Red, White, and Royal Blue which felt like such a disappointment in comparison to this. This book was stunning and diverse while still being super relatable. I read it as fast as I could because I just couldn’t get enough of the characters and what was going on in their lives. After that, I think I read a bunch of 3-star reads in a row so that’s some pretty good evidence.

36695485

2. The Governess Game

Right before my breakup, I was experiencing a lot of things and the book that I read during that time was¬†The Governess Game¬†by Tessa Dare. Maybe it’s just because I’d read one of her books before and after this, but it gave me a major hangover. For some reason, this book was all I thought about when I read her other books because it was so much better. Maybe it’s because I was reading her earlier work, but I remember thinking about how much I liked this book rather than the other two I read lol.

40719305. sy475

1. Fumbled

This book is actually a twofer since it got me out of a major reading slump but also gave me a major book hangover. I read this book about a month after my breakup and it felt like such a breath of fresh air. I loved the character, the romance and basically everything about this. However, it caused me to have a major hangover as I compared almost every single book to this one. No romance was as good as this one or the characters weren’t as good as this book. Considering that it was my favorite book of 2019 though, I can’t complain much.

Those are all the books that gave me a major hangover. Personally, I don’t get book hangovers much so this one was a little tough. Either way, it was a lot of fun to think outside of the box and be a bit more critical about my reading.

Contemporary-A-Thon Round 6 Wrap-Up

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Welcome to my wrap-up of Round 6 of the Contemporary-A-Thon. This is easily my favorite read-a-thon and I always try to participate every round that they have. This round was a special throwback round in which they featured prompts from the previous rounds so let’s get into the hosts, prompts and how I did.

This is going to follow the same format as my previous CAT wrap-ups so let’s go. First, this round was hosted by Chelsea, Julie, and Natasha. You can check out my TBR if you’d like to see the books I had picked for each one but here are the prompts.

  • Read a contemporary book with green on the cover
  • Read a contemporary from a new-to-you author
  • Read a diverse contemporary
  • Read a backlist contemporary
  • Read a dark/hard-hitting contemporary
  • Read a contemporary with an illustrated cover
  • Read a contemporary beloved by a member of the book community (and shout out the creator!)


Day 1: February 10th

50150135. sy475

Originally, I was supposed to be off Monday but ended up having to work. Because of that, I decided to pick up¬†Never Him¬†since it was relatively short. While it was a short read, I think it lacked a lot of character development. I think it’s independently published though so I’m not going to knock it down much. Some editing could have taken it from an okay to a good read, though.

Honestly, I don’t have much to say about this one. It was a hate-to-love romance that’s basically about a huge misunderstanding between two people who are in a wedding party together.¬†3/5 stars

Never Him fulfilled the challenge to read a contemporary by a new-to-you author. (1/7)

Day 2: February 11th

36493723. sy475

On Monday, I started this book and then on Tuesday before work, I powered through and finished it. This is a Black woman, Asian man romance between a boss and his employee with a small age-gap. It’s a little bit taboo but nothing that would really bother a mild romance reader. As for what I liked, I loved our main character Jennifer and how strong she was along with how she wasn’t ashamed of herself. I also loved the romance between her and Theo although he could be a bit overbearing.

As for something I didn’t like, I think the book had a shift in tone that didn’t really suit the 75% mark. If anything, it made me lower my rating and is easily my least favorite of Talia Hibbert’s books I’ve read so far. Either way, it’s another one that I can check off of her backlist.¬†3.5/5 stars.

Bad For The Boss fulfilled the challenge to read a diverse contemporary. (2/7)

Day 3: February 12th

39828159. sy475

It’s Wednesday and it’s my day off so I decided to sit down and read this book. Oh boy, it was such a treat. It was mostly about Kimi visiting her grandparents and figuring out her future but she also has an adorable romance with a guy she meets. I liked Kimi’s character and how she didn’t have it all figured out. I also loved all of the food references and it felt like I was in Japan by how Sarah Kuhn described everything.

As for what I didn’t like, I think this book felt a little bit flat as it was good but didn’t have much substance. It was a cute story overall but it didn’t blow my mind. It was still a really cute read though.¬†4/5 stars.

I Love You So Mochi¬†fulfilled the challenge to read a contemporary beloved by a member of the book community (3/7).¬†I’d like to shoutout one of my best friends, Lysette as she gifted this to me for Christmas and honestly, it was such a wonderful gift ‚̧ ‚̧

Day 4: February 13th

44281049

Since it was Galentine’s Day, I spent most of my day with my friend Laura and her kids. We left around 11:30 and I didn’t get home until like 7ish so a pretty long day. After showering and dealing with some other things, I sat down and read¬†Lucky Caller¬†all in one sitting. Honestly, this book is easily one of my favorites which is no surprise.

This book follows Nina as she signs up for a radio broadcasting class and it’s basically about the class, her friendships and possibly romance with a fellow member and the changes going on in her family. In typical Emma Mills fashion, everything was fleshed out and it was just so wonderful. I loved the characters, the romance, the friendships and the Easter eggs from other books. What I didn’t enjoy was Nina’s dad and the role he played in the story. However, it was still¬†5/5 stars!¬†

Lucky Caller fulfilled the challenge to read a contemporary with green on the cover. (4/7)

Day 5: February 14th

35560673. sy475

Since it was Valentine’s Day, I decided to read something completely out of my normal comfort zone and read a dark romance. This is a romance between London, a criminal psychologist who falls in love with her patient Grayson, a serial killer. This book was super dark and twisted like it felt like I was on a roller coaster the entire time. While it wasn’t my favorite read, it was still pretty good. I enjoyed how dark it was and the writing style was unlike anything I’ve read before.

What I didn’t enjoy was just how twisted it was at times. I think the story could have been grounded in reality a little bit but I guess that’s what makes it fiction. Either way, it was completely different for me.¬†4/5 stars.

Born, Darkly fulfilled the challenge to read a dark or hard-hitting contemporary. (5/7)

Day 6: February 15th

30312557. sy475

I worked 3-9 on Saturday so that’s why I saved my graphic novel and this one was such a delight. I really do enjoy these characters and their stories as they’re super relatable. I do think this series is a lot of fun but it doesn’t have much in terms of substance. They’re enjoyable but also my go-to for read-a-thons so I’m not sure if that means anything.¬†4/5 stars.

Giant Days Vol 4 fulfilled the challenge to read a contemporary with an illustrated cover. (6/7)

Day 7: February 16th

43264423. sy475

Thank goodness I was off on the last day of the CAT so I saved¬†Sweet Pea¬†until the end and what a good decision. This is a middle-grade following Sweet Pea who is dealing with 7th grade but also jugging her parent’s divorce, her dad coming out as gay and friendships. Overall, I thought this was really cute but didn’t have much as far as substance goes. It was cute but nothing overly memorable. Either way, it was still a cute and fun read. 4/5 stars.

Sweet Pea¬†fulfilled the challenge to read a backlist contemporary. (7/7)¬†Technically I cheated a little with this one as it hasn’t been on my TBR for a year but I was still excited to read it. Lol

My Favorite‚ĶDiverse Read of 2020 (So far!)

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! In honor of Black History Month, I decided to make a prompt based on diverse books. I think last year, I did one about my favorite Black authors but this year, I wanted to mix it up. When answering this, be sure to keep that fact in mind. Anyways, let’s get into my favorite diverse read of 2020 so far ūüėÄ

BookishlyRebecca is now the host of the ‚ÄúMy Favorite‚ÄĚ meme, a weekly meme posted on Wednesday. Originally started by¬†Maureen‚Äôs Books, she agreed to let me take over.

As Maureen described it, ‚ÄúIn this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let‚Äôs face it. The world can be a dark place and it‚Äôs to share something positive. Each week I will post a new My Favorite.. post about one subject and I‚Äôll tell you all about it. And the best part? Everyone is welcome to join. The only thing you‚Äôll have to do is sign up on my weekly post, link back to this post and visit others.‚ÄĚ

At the end of each month, I’ll post the prompts for the following month so be sure to check back then!


44569978. sy475

Will I ever stop talking about this book??? The answer to that question is no but A Girl Like Her¬†is easily my favorite book I’ve read all year. In addition to that, it’s also my favorite diverse read of the year. I honestly feel like I read my favorite book of the year already and nothing else can compare lmao. Either way, I knew I had to give this book another shout-out.

However, I do have a few books planned that might dethrone this book but I’m not going to get too excited because this book was just perfect. Is it bad that I already know that this book is going to be a favorite of the year? Lol Anyways, this was an easy pick for me.

Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Bookish Habits

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Once again, Shanah came up with a unique prompt and this one actually took me a while to come up with my answers. Personally, I don’t think about my bookish habits but I’m curious to see what I think of and be able to reflect on what I do as a reader. With that being said, let’s get into it!

If you’re interested in participating in Top 5 Tuesday, all you have do is write up your post and pingback to one of Shanah’s posts. Make sure you pingback to her posts and not just her blog so she can add you to the list.


26032912. sy475

5. Not remembering to finish a series

If there’s one bookish habit that I’ve picked up, it’s starting a new series and then eventually forgetting to finish it. While I did make that one of my goals for 2020, it’s still something that I struggle with. Even if I love the preceding books, I just don’t feel the need to pick the others up urgently or they aren’t available at my library or I don’t feel like buying them. Either way, I always end up dragging my feet and end up waiting until years later to complete the actual series lol.

4. Forgetting about audiobooks

Another habit that I’ve developed is forgetting about audiobooks and not using them when I have the chance. It’s probably because I’m not in the habit of looking for them but they’re never my first choice. Personally, I’d rather read an ebook and be able to physically see the words. However, I’ve enjoyed almost all of the audiobooks I’ve read so I’m not sure. Either way, this is easily a bookish habit that I need to fix lol.

44569988. sy475

3. Following my TBRs

Since I talked about two negative things, I figured I’d include something positive. One of my positive bookish habits is that I always follow my TBRs. Even if I don’t read a book that month, I move it to the next month. For some reason, I’ve never really had a problem, following TBRs because I see it as more a monthly goal. I just really like having a set plan for what I’m going to read that month so I try to follow it closely.

44569978. sy475

2. Using my library

One bookish habit that I’ve picked up in the last year or so was that I use my library almost exclusively for books. While I do have Kindle Unlimited, a lot of the books I read are from the library. Maybe it’s because I’m cheap or maybe it’s due to the fact that I just really like to read ebooks but honestly, I love using my library. It’s free books so what’s there to complain about? For instance, the last three books I read in January were all from the library which was excellent.

33275690

1. Rarely rereading books

One bookish habit that I’m looking to change in 2020 is that I want to start rereading more books. I rarely reread books and I really want to work on changing that. I think last year, I reread like maybe 10 books out of the 157 books I read. That’s barely even a dent in all of the books I read. I know it’s important to focus on new books and books that you’re excited about but I want to get back to some of my old favorites.

Lover Book Tag

Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Happy Valentine’s Day to you and because of that, I decided to do a romance tag…well a somewhat romance book tag. I saw that Sara posted this tag a while ago and I decided that I was going to do it for Valentine’s Day. While I’m not a huge Taylor Swift fan, I thought this would still be a good one. Plus I love book tags that feature songs as prompts so let’s get into it.

Rules:

  • Link back to the creator, Sara @ The Bibliophagist!
  • Answer the questions!
  • Tag whoever you want and link back to the person who tagged you!


I Forgot That You Existed: A book from your childhood that you don’t remember anything about

19302. sx318

Honestly, I don’t even remember when I read this book. I know that when I was younger, I dressed up as Pippi Longstocking¬†for Halloween and won an award. Other than that, I don’t remember much about this book. Perhaps it’s time for a reread lol.

Cruel Summer: The worst book you’ve read this summer

41945163. sy475

Looking back at summer 2019, the book I despised reading most was easily The Friend Zone. I know that a lot of people love this book but the last 25% really killed it for me and I couldn’t believe that this book took such a turn. I thought it was easily going to be a 4 or 5-star read but it ended up being 2 stars. Honestly, I unhauled this one as soon as I finished it.

Lover: A bookish relationship that’s perfect exactly the way it is

48359637. sy475

Xeni and Mason are easily one of my favorite bookish couples. Despite being forced together, the two had such an honest and pure relationship. There was nothing I would change about their dynamic. Even though they went through some rough patches, I think that’s why they were so perfect as they dealt with things that irl couples deal with.

The Man: A book with a badass female main character

42201395

Elisabeth was such a badass main character who dealt with so much during the course of this book. Somehow, she always picked herself back up and figured out a way to make things better. Plus she was incredibly determined and strong-willed especially when it came to the library. Honestly, I thought she was so great and I only wish that we were getting more of her story in future books.

The Archer: A book with great character development

40087230

I’m pretty sure that I used this in a Top 5 Tuesday post to talk about something similar but it’s so fitting. I think that Cameron’s character development throughout the course of¬†If I’m Being Honest¬†is one of the best examples. She goes through so much whether it be with her family, her relationships or herself that she’s better when the story comes to an end. While she didn’t change as much, she was a better version of herself than when the story began.

I Think He Knows: Your fictional crush

44569978. sy475

This one doesn’t need much explanation. I love Evan and I only wish that he was real so I could have a man like that.

Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince: A book set in high school

39991163. sy475

Technically, this book is set in a boarding school but I’m counting that as high school because they’re the same grade level. Anyways,¬†The Vanishing Stair¬†was easily one of my favorite YA reads of 2019 and I can’t wait to read more of it when the final book comes off hold at the library. I’ve never read a book set in high school like this so this was an easy pick.

Paper Rings: A book with a happy ending

40785611. sy475

In a lot of ways,¬†The Princess Trap¬†had a few happy endings. There was a happy ending for a side character, the main couple and the MC’s family. Honestly, the end of this book felt like a warm hug. I couldn’t believe how happy it made me when I finished it. ‚̧

Cornelia Street: A setting you’ll never forget

48748760. sy475

His Royal Highness¬†is my first book by R.S. Grey and there is a reason why I started with it. This book is set in a Disneylandesque theme park and it was completely sold on it from that point. Everything felt like it had an extra layer of magic all over it. It was also pretty unique and I couldn’t believe that other romance authors hadn’t jumped on the chance to do something like this.

Death By A Thousand Cuts: A book that broke your heart

44643289. sy475

While this a romance book, don’t get it confused as it’s a super emotional book. It will tear your heart out and step all over it. This book broke my heart multiple times as it dealt with a lot of tough topics so gracefully. It was such a difficult read but ultimately rewarding at the same time.

London Boy: A setting that plays a big role in the story

44569992. sy475

The book I chose for this one was Damaged Goods by Talia Hibbert. In a lot of ways, I think the setting is almost as important as the romance. This book is set in a beach town in England and honestly, it was such a huge part of the story. Everything about it felt so quaint and cozy which is how I felt about this romance. Considering how much Laura loved the beach, it made complete sense as well.

Soon You’ll Get Better: A book that made you cry

40624987. sy475

I read this book towards the end of 2019 and it made me cry a handful of times. It was such a powerful yet emotional read. I won’t give anything away, but it’s a vastly underrated book. I only wish that more people were picking it up.

False God: A book with a well-written sexy scene

44323708. sy475

Jasmine and Jafar smut, that’s all I’m saying.

You Need to Calm Down: A book featuring an LGBT romance

44528370. sy475

I think this is my own LGBT romance of 2020 so far but honestly, what a way to start off the year. This book was a hate-to-love f/f romance that I couldn’t get enough of. I know that Chelsea M. Cameron has a pretty extensive backlist so I’m excited to see what else she’s written.

It’s Nice To Have A Friend: Your favorite friends-to-lovers book

24811197

Easily one of my favorite friends-to-lovers books has to be¬†Dark Wild Night¬†by Christina Lauren. Of all the books in the series, this one is probably my favorite. It’s a friends-to-lovers romance between a comic book artist and a comic book shop owner. They’re just so precious and adorable together plus they had such a strong friendship that there was no way they wouldn’t eventually be a couple.

Daylight: A book with a positive message

While I do think this book has its dark moments, this book does have a few positive messages about dealing with change, being passionate about a project and realizing that maybe you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be. This book gets dark at times too but I think this is one that gets slept on for having some positive messages.


Holy cow! That was a long tag so kudos to you if you read the entire thing. I struggled a bit when coming up with books but I made it. Lol

As for tagging someone, I’m going to tag: Sofia, Jenna, and Meeghan. ‚̧
