    Happy Tuesday bookworms!! This week’s Top 5 Tuesday is characters I would trade places with!! I have to be real for a moment.

    August 2020 TBR

    Good morning bookworms!! Welcome to the August 2020 TBR!! You know why Joanne (this is how I’m probs going to refer to her from now on) being a total transphobic troll is the worst thing ever?

    Good morning bookworms! 2020 has been a time. One of my friends was joking that she and her sister are going to make a tour band style t-shirt for 2020, but instead of concerts, it’s just going to be all the shit that is going on in the world this year against each month. I imagine it’s going to look…

    Good morning bookworms! Look, I’ll be honest. I don’t even know HOW we are at the end of May already.
