Book Review Catch Up – NA and Adult
I recently posted the links to all the young adult books I’ve read so far this year. Today’s post will feature the new adult and adult books I’ve read, which include classics and nonfiction books. I actually meant to post this, like, a week ago, but I forgot. Apparently I’m still not used to updating this blog regularly. I’ll try to get better at that. Again, all links take you to my GoodReads reviews.
