But, sometimes there are books where I do want a physical copy, either because I loved the … Continue reading Ebooks I have read and want a physical copy of
Happy Friday, pals! Today, I'm reviewing three books I rated three stars! Usually, three-star reviews are fairly long, because I have a lot to say about the books to justify the three stars. But for these books, I honestly don't have that much to say. My rating for each of these can really be summed … Continue reading Three reviews of three star books

Happy September, friends! Today I'm talking about my August, which was pretty slow honestly. Surprising no one, I managed to read none of the books on my August reading plans.
