Thanks Shannon for this check-in! What did you read from the library this month?


  1. But you have so many great books waiting for you! Americanah, The Girls, Rich & Pretty, Homegoing!

    I’ve really held off reading Lily & Octopus. I’m not in the mood to have my heart stomped on. And then you also have Just Mercy out! Good lord woman! Do you own stock in kleenex??

  2. Soooo many good options in that checked out pile! That’s awesome. Just Mercy is heavy but so very good and important. I really hope you can get to it.

    I feel like ALL of us are moving this month or next! What’s with this mass book blogger exodus?! Best of luck with your move!
