    2022 mid year book tag

    Hello friends!! Welcome to the 2022 edition of the mid year book tag. We sometimes call it the mid-year freak out… but that implies I only freak out at mid-year. Which is categorically untrue.

    Hello bookworms!! Welcome to Top 5 Tuesday!! This week’s topic is top 5 rainy day reads. The summer sun was not meant for boys like me. Boys like me belonged to the rain.
