April Wrap-Up: Reviews, Reading Challenges, etc.

Another month is gone… Y’all, summer is basically here and I’m not really sure I’m ready for it. I hate the heat unless I’m on a beach. But am I at the beach? No, I’m sitting at work and it blows.

But hey, at least there’s only 5 more months until the Halloween season! Am I right or am I right?!

    1. This was my first Lauren Willig novel and I really enjoyed it. I recommend it if you like historical fiction mysteries. I know she also has a new release coming out next month that has been getting a lot of buzz as well. I think it’s called The Summer Country.
