2021 Reading Recap

2021 was a surprisingly good reading year for me! I managed to hit my Goodreads and Beat the Backlist reading goals, while reading more books than I did in 2020.

August 2021: Monthly Wrap-Up

Happy September! In my heart, fall starts today, but in reality, fall is still a few weeks away. That isn’t going to stop me from wearing long pants instead of shorts, though! I wasn’t as present here as I would have liked to be this month, but I had a really busy August! I was finally able to...
